Uber appeals against licence loss in Brighton & Hove
Uber has launched an appeal against Brighton & Hove City Council's decision to strip the taxi app of its licence.
It was also concerned about Uber's lack of commitment to use only Brighton & Hove licensed drivers in the city.
An Uber spokesman said: "We want to continue providing more choice and competition... in the city."
Brighton & Hove City Council confirmed the appeal had been submitted and said Uber could continue to operate in the city, regulated by the council, until the appeal is determined.
On 1 May, Brighton & Hove City Council said the decision not to renew Uber's licence was unanimous, following a meeting on 23 April.
Chair of the licensing panel, Councillor Jackie O'Quinn, said at the time: "Our priority is the safety of residents and visitors and... we were not satisfied that UBL are a fit and proper person to hold an operator's licence in the city."
