Minutes:

Further to Minute 105 of its meeting held on Wednesday, 26th June 2019, the Sub Committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) on the outcome of the statutory consultation for the revocation of the two taxi stands outside Southend Hospital on Prittlewell Chase and the installation of a single taxi stand on Prittlewell Chase. 

 

The new taxi stand would be of equal capacity as the two stands proposed for revocation.  The purpose of this proposal would enable the bus stops outside the Hospital to be moved to the most western Hospital entrance on Prittlewell Chase, allowing users of the bus stops at the Hospital to mount and dismount from the buses safely at busy/peak times.

 

Resolved:-

 

That the two existing taxi stands on Prittlewell Chase be revoked and one taxi stand on Prittlewell Chase, extending from the end of the zebra crossing zig zags opposite numbers 218 – 220 Prittlewell Chase heading eastwards for a distance of 78m, be appointed and installed.
