818The Sub Committee received a report of the Interim Director of Enterprise, Tourism and the Environment that sought Members' views on the proposed the removal of and amendments to Hackney Carriage stands within the Borough. Mr B Fry of the Southend Taxi Drivers Association was in attendance at the meeting.

Concerns were however, expressed at the proposal to change the existing timed stand at Tylers Avenue, opposite Dencora Court, to a 24 hour stand on the grounds that this road was now one of only a few routes across the High Street and was becoming increasingly more used. Whilst traffic flow was not currently impeded, the change of the timing of the stand to 24 hours could have a detrimental effect on the traffic flow. It was therefore suggested that the timing of the stand be increased from 8.00 p.m. until 3.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. until 7.00 a.m.
