Two important meetings

Posted by davidburbage on July 22, 2008

We held two important meetings last night – taxis and Health Service.

On taxis the Licensing Panel met to discuss a proposal to increase the number of licenses from 87 to 100, and to amalgamate the old Maidenhead/Windsor/Ascot zones into one. There are a number of vested interests here from existing taxi drivers, people waiting for licenses, people operating in one area who would like to pick up in other areas … the proposal went through I understand.

On the NHS ‘Right Care, Right Place’ a number of discussions have been taking place because NHS services are being proposed to move around in/out of Borough and changes to services provided. In the end the package was accepted but we ensured that Heatherwood retains the confidence and operational business of a local hospital – there are fears in the Ascot area that services will be forever downgraded and eventually lead to closure proposals. It looks like that is not the case!
