Only taxis licensed by Brentwood Borough Council are authorised to ply for hire from these stands.
The hackney carriage stands are there to provide local transportation and it is important that they are kept clear for taxis to use. It is an offence for other vehicles to park or wait on a designated hackney carriage stand. The Council's enforcement officers monitor the use of the stands and can take action, including prosecution, in appropriate cases. The maximum fine is Â£1,000.
