Essex County Council are proposing a Taxi Rank is placed in Ferry Road outside the Hullbridge Medical Centre. They are doing this in response to a request from Rochford District Council and Taxi operators.
The Parish Council has been asked for its views and will be discussing it tomorrow night at the monthly Parish Meeting. If you would like to give your views, which can then be conveyed to Essex County Council then please come along to the meeting.
A number of people who live in Ferry Road have mentioned the Taxi rank to me and are against it. They say there are problems anyway with parking outside the Chemist & the Doctors without more spaces being taken by taxis and also that the congestion in that part of Ferry Road, which is in any case bad, will just become worse.
They have also said that the obvious place for a Taxi rank would be nearer the river where most people are and where all three pub/bars are. A diagram of the proposed site can be seen here Taxi Rank
