Agenda item

Mobile Street Trading

Minutes:

7.1

The Chief Licensing Officer referred to an issue which had recently been highlighted in connection with mobile street trading.  He stated that the new Street Trading Policy, adopted by the Committee at its meeting held on 20th February, 2014, only contained reference to traders selling fresh fruit and vegetables or ice cream. It had since become apparent that there were now a number of traders selling goods other than fresh fruit and vegetables and ice cream, such as the Proper Pasty Company, and that there was a need to reflect this in the Policy. 

 

 

7.2

RESOLVED: That the Committee:-

 

 

 

(a)       notes the information now reported, together with the comments now made;

 

 

 

(b)       in the light of the information now reported, delegates authority to the Chief Licensing Officer to grant consent, as an  exception to the policy, to mobile street traders selling goods other than fresh fruit and vegetables or ice cream, and that those traders selling fresh fruit and vegetables or ice cream must continue to comply/operate in accordance with the policy; and

 

 

 

(c)      requests that the Chief Licensing Officer submits a report on the proposed amendments to the Street Trading Policy to a future meeting, for approval.

 

 

 

(NOTE: In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 26 of the Council’s Constitution and the provisions of Section 100B(4)(b) of the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, the Chair decided that the above item be considered as a matter of urgency in the light of current demands on the Licensing Service and to comply with appropriate timescales, although it had not been possible to give five clear days’ notice that the matter was to be considered).
