Online Petitions Can Be very Affective....You don't always need massive support, just a good campaign.

A lot of drivers I've spoke to recently, seem to have no faith in online petitions, saying you need to get hundreds of thousands of signatures for anyone to take you seriously. 

The reply below from Westminster City Council, proves all the doubting Thomas's wrong.

Look at the result achieved by just 252 caring local residents. 


Dear Xxxxxx

Re: Response to Petition – ‘Rebuild Carlton Tavern’ 

I am writing to you as lead petitioner in response to the petition received entitled ‘Rebuild Carlton Tavern.’ The petition has now closed for the
collection of signatures and received 252 signatures in total.

You will be pleased to know that the Council’s Planning Committee resolved on the 5th May 2015 that an enforcement notice be issued requiring the rebuilding of the Carlton Tavern Public House.

The enforcement notice was subsequently served on all persons known to have an interest in the land on 19th June 2015. The enforcement notice requires the following:

“Rebuild The Carlton Tavern Public House, to match in facsimile the building as it stood immediately prior to its demolition on 8th April 2015, in conformity with the detailed architectural descriptions as to building materials, plan form, exterior and interior attached to this Notice, and in conformity with the photographs attached for the purposes of Illustration.” 

Prior to the enforcement notice taking effect, an appeal was submitted to the Secretary of State for the Department of Communities and Local
Government. The City Council is currently waiting on the start date for the appeal and confirmation as to how the appeal will be heard. The City Council has though specifically requested that the appeal be heard by way of Public Inquiry to enable some local residents to attend and make representations. 

There is also an extant appeal against the City Council’s decision to refuse planning permission on 13th January 2015 for the following development:

“Demolition of existing public house and redevelopment to provide a building comprising of basement, ground and four upper floors to provide a public house (Class A4) at ground floor and basement level and 10 residential units from basement to fourth floor levels; associated landscaping works and cycle parking.”

It is highly likely that the two appeals will be co-joined and determined jointly although we are awaiting confirmation from the Planning Inspectorate on this point.

Given that an appeal has now been submitted against the enforcement notice, the requirements of the notice are held in abeyance pending determination of the appeal. Once the appeal start date has been confirmed, the City Council will be consulting widely to enable the local community the opportunity to make representations regarding the appeal.

The City Council shares the local communities concerns and is committed to doing all that it can, within the constraints of the statutory framework we are obliged to observe, to get the Carlton Tavern Public House rebuilt in facsimile.   

Yours sincerely


JOHN WALKER 
DIRECTOR OF PLANNING

Press release from "Save Our Black Taxis" Group :

In light of the ongoing dispute between London's Black Taxis and the business activities of Private Hire Vehicle (PHV) operators – a brand new trade organisation with a difference has been formed.

Spearheaded by cabby’s wife, Artemis Mercer, thousands of families and trade supporters of licensed Black Taxi Drivers have united against what they describe as the “woeful failure of Transport for London (TFL) to fairly regulate the taxi and private hire market”.

With the aim of garnering further support from the public and highlighting the demoralising effects of TFL's lack of regulation and enforcement which is having on families, consumer choice, congestion, air quality and public safety - Facebook’s ‘Save Our Black Taxis’ has gained almost 13,000 supporters in a few months and close to 4000 followers on Twitter as @SaveTaxi.

Such is the severity of the problem, the taxi trade is now in steep decline with many taxi drivers leaving the trade seeking other employment. Also, the number of people applying to do the Knowledge has dropped by a third so far this year. Our iconic London taxi revered all over the world is in serious threat. London taxis own regulator is doing nothing to protect them as it seems TFL is putting money and corporate greed first.

TFL introduced the congestion charge to reduce traffic in London. Despite this, they are currently issuing an average of over 600 PHV licences per week with no plans to stop. Since 2012 when Uber London was licensed, our capital has gone from 8th to 1st place now being Europe’s most congested city. This has significantly increased NO2 levels more than any other European city and 9000 Londoners are now dying each year from air pollution. For how long can this continue?

Furthermore, illegal touting has become rife and PHV’s are coming into London from other areas to work. Even when TFL is presented with photographic evidence of this they have failed to take adequate action, if any. This is a huge concern as these drivers are not traceable if crimes are committed. Disturbingly, there have also been over 10,000 complaints involving Uber in the last 18 months, in addition the Metropolitan Police have a record of over 600 criminal offences involving Uber in the last 12 months and furthermore Police figures also show that 214 women were sexually assaulted in London last year after getting into illegal minicabs and 54 were raped.

TFL have no database of PHV drivers awaiting criminal proceedings or a database for background checks, causing a serious risk to public safety, why? Also, there is no database of PHV drivers dismissed for sexual misconduct against passengers, why? Any PHV driver could be on bail awaiting trial for sexual assault and yet TFL have no record. If they are dismissed from one mini cab company for sexual allegations, they can move to another mini cab company without further checks.

Why are these issues not being addressed by our own regulator and why are TFL's own regulations which are there to protect public safety not being enforced. Yet, on the other hand the taxi drivers are totally over regulated in comparison? A recent example of this was TFL sending letters threatening legal action to taxi drivers for displaying a Totally Failing London sticker in their taxis whilst off duty.

Whilst the number of taxi licences have always been restricted to around 25,000, at the current rate of new PHV licences being issued there will be 100,000 mini cabs by the end of this year. With a fee of £250 for a new PHV licence, is it a case of TFL putting the pound before passenger safety?

This is of paramount public interest thus Save Our Black Taxis are holding a family demo on 5 September between 1-3pm outside Downing Street to publicise TFL's incompetence and their perceived contempt for the London taxi trade. This campaign would benefit from having our side of the story heard.

Taxi Driver Families Demo, Saturday 5th Sept, Downing Street, 1-3 pm


Three days to go : 
The Save Our Black Taxis campaign group #SaveTaxis, will be holding their second demonstration on September 5th from 1-3pm opposite Downing Street. 

Spearheaded by cabbie’s wife Artemis Mercer, thousands of partners, wives, husbands, friends and families of Licensed London Black Cab drivers have come together to stand united against what they describe as the “woeful failure of Transport for London to regulate the taxi and private hire market in London.”


At present, TfL are pushing out an extra 2,000 new private hire drivers every month!

How much long long can this city sustain this expansion? 

Despite the continued lies, there is no visible enforcement against illegally plying for hire or touting by minicabs!

Drivers have been screaming for action on social media, well here's your chance to get out and protest. 
 
If you can join us please come along and if anyone needs a free taxi to get there email us at mail@dpac.uk.net

VIDEO: Investigation into rapist taxi scandal findings revealed


An investigation into how a rapist was allowed to drive a city taxi for
three years has been detailed in a report released this morning.
Milton Keynes Council launched an Internal Audit Service following the city
cabbie scandal that emerged in August.
The findings of that taxi licensing investigation were published today.
At a press conference this morning, chief executive of the council, Carole
Mills, and leader Pete Marland told the press they wanted to "restore trust"
in the council and taxi trade.
