Save "The Gate" (Newgate Street) - Newcastle Hackney Taxi rank from closure.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Newcastle City Council continue to take important rank spaces away from central areas of Newcastle City centre. As an Association to represent Newcastle Hackney Taxi drivers we now need the support of the public. Please sign the petition to save "The Gate" AND Marks & Spencer (Prudhoe Place) taxi rank from closure. Closure of these two very important taxi rank's will produce continuous ongoing problems for the public and disabled individuals. Newcastle City Council have slowly taken away important rank space without consulting with Hackney drivers or proprietors. We are part of the public transport system in Newcastle and we need your support. Which taxi rank will be next if Newcastle Council believe The Gate and Marks & Spencer's ranks can be closed?

Please sign the form to show support to save “The Gate” rank & Marks & Spencer's ranks - Please see our website at for more details. 

Private Hire vehicles are picking passengers up illegally within the Newcastle boundaries and closing this rank makes this illegal activity easier.

Thank you
