    Default UK: Pedicab taxi service for Skegness?


    Published Date: 21 December 2007, Location: Skegness


    Pedicab taxi service for Skegness?

    A PROPOSED pedicab taxi service has been given support by Skegness town councillors.

    A limited service was offered by the Skegness Pedicab Company during the summer but it was only able to operate on a prescribed route as a tourist attraction rather than as a taxi.

    The company is now seeking permission from East Lindsey District Council to allow it to operate as taxis which will mean the pedicabs can pick up and take fares anywhere in the Skegness area.

    Skegness town clerk Tony Cumberworth said the company was looking to use the taxi rank outside Barlife, on the corner of Scarbrough Avenue, as its base.

    Some cou
    ncillors expressed reservations before offering support for the application.

    Couns Pat Phillips and Sue Binch shared concerns about it causing friction with other taxi firms in Skegness and about safety.

    Coun Phillips said: "I have got issues about the safety of them all year round. The sea front is one thing but Skegness is a very busy place and people could be vulnerable."

    But then she acknowledged there had been a similar enterprise in Skegness many years ago which was successful and pedicabs would be eco-friendly.

    Couns Dick Edginton and George Saxon thought it would be a great tourist attraction, and Coun Phil Kemp pointed out they are popular in China.

    Our case to use pedicabs as taxis will be at one of the next two meetings of the licensing committee (ELDC) Jan or Feb we are not too sure which one yet. We will of course keep you all informed as to were we are with our request for a taxi license. As you can see from above we do have the support of the town council. We were allowed to go out for a period of two weeks giving free rides just to promote the business and had the full support of the local taxi drivers as we were no threat to there business and was undertaking the short journeys they were not really interested in. There is still quite a long way to go with this as we have to convince district council, county council and Lincolnshire Highways to get behind this but we are committed to it and will not give up until we get there!!!!! We will keep you all updated as and when we have any news.
