The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) outlining the conclusions of the Hackney Carriage Unmet Demand Study 2019 undertaken by LVSA (Licenced Vehicles Surveys and Assessments) on behalf of this Authority.
Reasons for Decision
That the Unmet Demand Survey 2019 has identified that there is NO evidence of significant unmet demand for hackney carriages in Southend.
