The unit, which is divided between a ground floor retail unit, a hair and beauty salon above that and then office space above that, will be used only as a satellite office only to deal with bookings made either either on the phone app or by website.

Under the terms of the planning permission that was granted, no customers will be allowed to visit the building, nor will any drivers wait at the office or pick up customers from there.

Hunts Taxis, which has an existing private hire office in Huntingdon, said: “This site is required for us to expand our services in Peterborough and surrounding areas. This is something that has been welcomed and it means we will be creating more jobs and will benefit the economy on the long run.”
