An external survey has just confirmed 'significant unmet demand' in Renfrewshire. The survey and council officials recommended an increase of 15 additional licences. At a meeting yesterday a council committee increased numbers from 214 to 235.

Was that the survey where the bosses wanted the plates?

How are the plates being divvied out?

Well..under Diversity and equality regulations 7.5 plates will need to go to females, 4 plates will need to go to LGBT types, 3 plates to ethnic minorities...that leaves some straight white guy with half a plate.

The plates are up for grabs on June the 15th. I'll keep you posted as I applied for two :D
PS I'm unemployed and would love the chance to drive my own cab especially during peak demand.

The big bosses include: Renfrewshire Cab Company (ten applications), Paisley Taxis (five), Renfrewshire Radio Cars (two)

It depends on how they decide to issue the licenses, local authorities (in England & Wales) work on the following practices;

1, A waiting list

2, A lottery

3, A points system

4, A mix of 2 & 3

In Southampton they have a ballot.

The thought of cab firms getting those plates makes me want to puke.

A quick email with a complaint stating that they should be shared out, to individual drivers
