I want to bring cute and unique Piaggio Ape Calessino's to Ipswich Waterfront as a Tourist attraction. These are quirky Italian 3 wheelers that carry 2 passengers and a driver. If you have ever been to the Italian Riveria you will have seen them buzzing around.

Ipswich Waterfront is going through a regeneration phase, and the Calessino's would add to the attraction of this area. I have a number of local businesses who are prepared to sponsor this, and therefore the rides would be free.

The problem is that I am unable to run these along the Waterfront because I do not meet the licensing regulations imposed by Ipswich Council. I have been told that I need to apply for either a Hackney Carriage or Private Hire Licence, which I am prepared to do, but I have been told that I would be turned down because the vehicle does not meet the vehicle requirements for granting these licences.

I will be applying for a licence, knowing that I will probably be turned down, but with enough people backing a petition, I might sway the licensing committee to give my application serious consideration.

It makes no sense that I am unable to provide free rides along Ipswich Waterfront, but I can run Brides and Grooms around town, and charge them, without any licence.

It's bonkers - your support might just sway the decision.
