L.13/18           

A report was considered that presented the outcome of the consultation exercise that had been undertaken on a proposal to adopt a new Traffic Regulation Order to create a ‘no waiting except for Taxis’ bay on Clifton Place, Salcombe.

 

In her introduction, the Licensing Specialist highlighted that two representations had been received and the key issues (as outlined in full at Appendix B of the presented agenda report) were summarised.

 

In the ensuing debate, reference was made to:-

 

(a)   the two representations.  Some Members expressed their surprise that the consultation exercise had only generated two representations;

 

(b)   the views of a local Ward Member.  The local Ward Member in attendance confirmed that she had no objections to the proposed taxi stand;

 

(c)    the proposed 11.00am to 1.00am operating hours.  The Licensing Specialist clarified that the 11.00am start time had been proposed to minimise any potential disruption to early morning delivery times.

 

It was then:

 

RESOLVED

 

That, in accordance with Section 63 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976, the proposed Taxi Stand at Clifton Place, Salcombe be appointed with immediate effect.
