Subject: Street Trading Application - London Road

 

Dear Adrian

 

Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982

Section 3 and Schedule 4 Street Trading

Application for Selling: Pizza and Soft Drinks

Location: London Road (Corner with Hildenborough Crescent), Allington

 

With reference to your application dated 8th October under the above Act, I regret to inform you that Mr John Littlemore, Head of Housing and Community Services cannot determine your application for a street trading consent due to objections having been received, (see attached).

 

The Council has decided that if an objection is received, the applicant will have the right to a hearing before a group of Members. If you wish to proceed to a hearing please write to me stating any responses to the objections and I will arrange for the matter to be taken to the next Licensing Committee Meeting to discuss your application.

 

If I do not hear from you within three weeks from the date of this letter I will assume that you do not wish to pursue your application further.  I will then arrange for a refund of the Consent fee to be sent to you in due course.

 

According to the Act, a person who engages in street trading in a Consent Street without being authorised to do so is guilty of an offence and is liable to prosecution.  This applies while applications are being considered by the Council.  Therefore, if you trade without Consent you are liable to prosecution.

 

You should be aware that the Council may refuse to grant Consent if, despite being informed that a Street Trading Consent is required, an applicant continues to trade within the Borough.

 

Kind regards

 

Kerry Watson
