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.
There were many stance orders made for North Ayrshire before December 2019. Details of those stance orders and new orders will be added to the table below:
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
