nearest neighbours of note to the
new Bexley Cabs office are Bar Lorca and the
Ex-Servicemen’s Club which along with its car park
lies behind the proposed taxi office. Last night it held its Annual General Meeting.
The Committee reported that there had been three meetings with Mark Campbell and it was understood that planning permission had been formally sought last Wednesday, 28th March. There was considerable concern about the congestion there might be if minicabs were allowed to congregate in the road outside Bar Lorca or in the access road to the Club and it will therefore “oppose the application vigorously”.
A problem for the Ex-Servicemen’s Club is that, contrary to what you might expect, it doesn’t usually stay open late. They foresee the need to put a barrier at the car park entrance to curtail unauthorised out of hours use.
Bexley Cabs is only 50 or 60 yards from the kebab shop Bexley council wanted to close early because one of its customers was murdered.
