Views sought on hackney taxi rank proposals

John Freeman
Lancaster City Council is asking for views on proposals to make changes to hackney taxi ranks in Lancaster, Morecambe and Carnforth.

Following proposals from the hackney taxi trade, a range of proposals have been put forward.

They include removing some unused taxi ranks, to extend and create others and change times that some are in operation.

Alternatively they are available for inspection at Lancaster Town Hall and Morecambe Town Hall.

Councillor Tony Johnson, chairman of the city council’s Licensing Regulatory Committee, said: “These proposals have been put forward by the hackney carriage trade and it is important that local people now have the opportunity to have their say.”

• Details of the proposals are available on the city council’s website at
