Cumbrian skip hire firms up before traffic commissioner

Two skip firms are to appear before the traffic commissioner for hearings involving safety issues.

Longtown Skip Hire Ltd and Sparky’s Skip Hire, at Wigton, are to appear before the North West Traffic Commissioner, Beverley Bell, on June 21 in Golborne, Wigan.

The hearing of Mark Richard Ward and Adrian Robson, trading as Sparky’s Skip Hire, follows an investigation by the Vehicle and Operator Service Agency (VOSA), which found issues with systems for keeping vehicles serviced on time.

The case involving Longtown Skip Hire involves the ‘apparent failure’ to comply with a licence undertaking preventative safety inspections. It was also investigated by VOSA.

The hearings will take place at 2pm.

The traffic commissioner has the power to revoke or limit an operator’s licence, or impose a condition limiting the number of vehicles an operator can licence.

Given the tide of public opinion against on-street parking charges in Cumbria, should county councillors scrap the plan now?

Yes. They should show they hear the voice of the people

No. The council needs the money and has to get it from somewhere

Town centres will suffer but the council will spend £10m on a new HQ. How can that be right?
