Taxi stances

We have powers to:

  • appoint a stance
  • vary the number of taxis permitted at a stance
  • alter the position of stances
  • revoke the appointment of stances

The Law is in the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982, Section 19.

Only a taxi with a North Ayrshire Council "taxi Licence" can wait on a stance. Private Hire Cars, and private cars, cannot wait on a stance. Under Section 21(7) it is a criminal offence, without reasonable excuse, to cause or permit any vehicle other than a taxi to wait on any stance for taxis.

If we propose to make an order about a taxi stance, it must publicise the proposals. Anyone - taxi operators, taxi drivers, and members of the public - can state objections or representations in writing to:
