Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 - Street Trading - Static Street Trading Consent - Rustlings Road pdf icon PDF 959 KB

Report of the Chief Licensing Officer



The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report to consider an application, under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, for the grant of a Static Street Trading Consent for Rustlings Road (Case No. 51/19).




Present at the meeting were Andrew Cuneo (Applicant), Samantha Bond (Legal Adviser to the Sub-Committee) and John Turner (Democratic Services).




Samantha Bond outlined the procedure which would be followed during the hearing.




Samantha Bond, in the absence of an officer from the Licensing Service, presented the report, and it was noted that an objection to the application had been received from a local resident, and was attached at Appendix ‘B’ to the report.  The local resident had been invited to the meeting, but was not in attendance.




Andrew Cuneo stated that he had one permanent trading site in Endcliffe Park, and that this application was similar to a previous application in respect of the site on the Hunters Bar roundabout, as in he would only be trading from the site on those days when it was particularly busy in the Park.  He stated that on certain days of the year, particularly during the summer months, there was an increased demand on those days when it was particularly busy.  He stressed that he would not be trading at this location every day.  Mr Cuneo stated that all his trading vans were either Euro 4, 5 or 6 compliant in terms of CO2 emissions.  He stated that he used the newest and cleanest vans in the City, and that CO2 emission levels were negligible.  In terms of road safety, Mr Cuneo stated that he assumed that any young children wanting an ice cream would be accompanied by an adult.  He also stated that, given that there could be three vans trading in the immediate area, they were not expecting long queues. 




In response to questions from Members of, and the Legal Adviser to,  the Sub-Committee, Mr Cuneo stated that whilst some of the ice cream was kept frozen using battery power, with the battery having been charged the previous night, there was a need to keep the van’s engine running in order to maintain the soft ice cream at the correct consistency.  He stressed however, that given the current strict conditions regarding CO2 emissions, he did not consider this to be an issue.  With regard to the errors on the application form, which had been completed by Mr Cuneo’s partner, he confirmed that he did have the legal right to work and live in the UK and that he had never been refused a Street Trading Consent in this or any other area.  Mr Cuneo also confirmed that he would park the van on the road, where there were currently no restrictions, and not on the pavement.  He confirmed that the van to be used at this location was Euro 4 compliant, and that given the very stringent tests when taken for its MOT, he stated that the engine emissions were  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
