To determine an application for a licence to trade in a designated consent street.

 

Recommendation

 

The Licensing Committee reviews consultation feedback and determines the application of James Boyd of Vaporetto (a mobile food business offering pizza, drinks and ice cream) for a consent to trade at Cherry Tree Road in Milford.

Minutes:

The Committee REFUSED the application on grounds of public nuisance, objections raised and issues that had been previously encountered with inadequate parking provision and access for the refuse vehicles and emergency vehicles.  This is in accordance with section 2.3 (2.3.1 to 2.3.3) of the Street Trading Policy April 2021 which states:

 

2.3       In considering any application for the grant or renewal of a street trading consent the following issues will be taken into account before determination:

 

2.3.1    Public order

 

            Whether the street trading activity or activities represented, or are likely to represent, a substantial risk to public order.

 

2.3.2    Public nuisance

 

Whether the street trading activity or activities represent, or are likely to represent, a substantial risk of nuisance to the public from noise or misbehaviour. Particular regard to this will be had in respect of consents in predominantly residential areas and due regard will be had to the character of the neighbourhood.

 

2.3.3.   Public safety

 

Whether the location of the street trading activity or activities represent, or are likely to represent, a substantial risk to the public from the point of view of obstruction, fire hazards, unhygienic conditions, danger that may occur when a trader is accessing the site, and overcrowding the site/area.

Overcrowding includes the capacity of the street trading area having the potential maximum attendance on the site by the public, and the consequent risk of over congestion impacting adjacent roads to the site.
