Local government – Taxi licence – Variation of condition. Sheriff Court: Allowing an appeal against a local authority licensing committee's refusal to vary a condition of the appellant's taxi licence to allow him to substitute a saloon-type vehicle for his wheelchair accessible vehicle, the court held that the respondent had erred in law by failing to properly discharge its duty to make reasonable adjustments to its taxi licence policy in terms of s 20 of the Equality Act 2010.
