Taxis parking illegally on pavements and in loading bays are annoying a veteran Windsor trader.
At Tuesday's annual meeting of Windsor District Chamber of Commerce, past president David Jessey said: "For a historic town of quality seeing taxis littering up High Street, Thames Street, pavements and loading bays is a disgrace."
Mr Jessey - former proprietor of John Goodwin Menswear - called for a 'stacking area' to be established where taxis could wait until a legal space was available and suggested the coach park in Alma Road.
The meeting took place at Sir Christopher Wren Hotel in Thames Street. It saw Amanda Gee elected president of the chamber after three years as a serving chairman.
Phil McMichael, who owns the franchise for Bang and Olufsen in High Street, was elected chairman.
Jeremy Davies stayed as chairman of the chamber's Ascot section for a second year.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
