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:
- Aileen Craig
Clerk to the Licensing Committee
