On 23rd April I launch a campaign to have the taxi rank, Railway Street, Pocklington removed. Today I am delighted to announce that my campaign has been successful subject to formal process.
Pocklington Parking Success
This is my third successful parking campaign I have had in Pocklington in recent months:
- Removal of unlawful double yellow lines on Robertson Close, Pocklington
- Re-widening of parking bays on Market Street, Pocklington
- Removal of taxi rank on Railway Street, Pocklington

Dear Mr Strangeway
Thank you for your e-mail below.
I will ask our Licensing team to take a report to the next Licensing Committee to seek approval to consult on the removal of the rank. This process will take up to 3 months to complete depending on objections received.
With regard to the figures supplied on how many PCNs have been issued to none Taxis parking in the taxi bays, I can confirm that the figures supplied to you under the FoI Act were for all taxi ranks in the East Riding of Yorkshire and not just the two parking bays in Pocklington. I apologise if the FoI officer has misunderstood your request.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
