Douglas Street residents win Community Council backing against taxi office plans

A letter signed by 20 folk from Douglas street was presented to the River Community Council earlier this evening in a successful effort to win support against what the possibility of a 24 hour taxi service being established in their access only street. They do not wish anything other than a 9-5 business to be sited in the newly revamped building that was the former office of Frank Milne fuel supplies.
Joe Telfer won the unanimous backing of the community councillors as he outlined how the narrow road without footpaths would be affected by customers coming from licensed premises and seeking taxis in the early hours of the morning.
Here's a copy of a letter sent by Douglas Street protesters to the planning department.
