Have your say

Enforcement operations are to be held at taxi ranks in Rotherham town centre to ensure they are being used properly.

Joint patrols are to be carried out by Rotherham Council’s licensing team and parking enforcement officers and South Yorkshire Police.

Coun Rose McNeely, Rotherham Council cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said: “Drivers should always ensure they park legally.”

The taxi ranks – on Moorgate Street, Ship Hill, Effingham Square, High Street and Corporation Street – are available for Hackney Carriages to wait for customers.
