Minutes:

The Sub-Committee received a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and the Environment) that sought approval to commence the statutory consultation on the revocation of the taxi stand on London Road in Southend-on-Sea, located at the ‘dead end’ where London Road (from College Way) meets the High Street at Victoria Circus and the installation of a new stand on the opposite of the road as set out in the submitted report and illustrated on the plan attached as an Appendix.

 

Resolved:

 

1.  That the statutory consultation process on the revocation of the existing taxi stand on London Road, located at the ‘dead end’ where London Road (from College Way) meets the High Street at Victoria Circus be authorised.

 

2.  That the statutory consultation process on the appointment of a taxi stand located on London Road, further back on the same side of London Road on the other side of the Private Road be authorised. This stand will measure 43.5m again in 2 lanes (25.5m+18m) and extend around the end point of London Road, split into 5 marked areas (3.2m+5m+1.7m+5.5m+14m). In addition, on the opposite side of London Road a ‘Taxi pick up only - for disabled users’ area will be designated (22.5m). This will include a ‘KEEP CLEAR’ section, as this is required to be kept clear for emergency access at all times. The entire new layout totals 95.4m and will operate as a taxi stand 24 hours a day

 

3.  That, in the event that there are no objections received as a result of the consultation, the stand is relocated in accordance with the specifications laid out in the submitted report, without the need to be referred back to the Licensing Sub-Committee C for consideration.
