Cheltenham businessman James Myer spent thousands of pounds buying three rickshaws which he wants to use around the town.
13 months ago he applied to Cheltenham Borough Council for a licence to take passengers but they still haven't given him a decision. So his rickshaws remain in the garage.
He says he is now on the verge of giving up the whole idea.
A meeting is taking place this evening at the borough council to try to find out why it has taken so long.
