Permission sought for two new fixed trading sites

July 8, 2017

A planning application has been submitted for a fixed trading site by the Park on the Parade on St Mary's.

 

 

The proposal is to 'provide a fixed trading site for a mobile food and beverage business as per the Council's fixed trading policy'.
 

The site is used as a 'pedestrian area with some bicycle parking, street furniture and flower pots', according to the application.

 

It is also currently used by mobile gourmet burger van 28 Mile Grill.

 

The application, made by Senior Officer for Licensing Sue Pritchard on behalf of the Council, is accompanied by a supporting statement. It reads: "There is an electrical connection inside the gate to the Park. Generators would not be permitted under any circumstances. The site for trading is proposed to be at the rear of the site facing into the park. This would allow customers to queue through the Park and not over the road area and still leaves sufficient room for the bike rack and telephones to be available for community use, thus mitigating people queuing in the road.

 

"It is worth noting that the site is already well used by community and visitors alike for bike parking, use of the telephone boxes and access to the Park, one side of the road access is a ‘giveway’ junction and traffic is already slowing along the most difficult stretch of the road; the other side is a straight run, which allows a clear view of any pedestrians venturing to cross."

 

It adds: "Traders would have to provide suitable working conditions which would include the use of appropriate extraction to mitigate smells. It is proposed that the site be available for May to October in any year between 11am and 2pm and 6pm to 9pm on a daily basis. The site must be vacated at the end of each trading day.

 

"The successful operator must make suitable arrangements with the Authority’s Waste and Recycling department for the disposal of rubbish created by their chosen trade and for the disposal of waste (grey) water which is not provided on site."

 

A similar application has also been made on behalf of the Council for a fixed trading site on the Lower Strand 'to the west end of the existing bus stop'.

 

The supporting statement reads: "There is an electrical connection within Holgate's Green which would be suitable and the supply so provided would be required to have a non-slip/trip cover as it traversed the pavement. Use of the site so close to designated recreational area with established seating can have many benefits including the ease with which any rubbish produced by the business may be collected by the trader rather than dispersed through the Town.

 

"The successful operator must make suitable arrangements with the Authority’s Waste and Recycling department for the disposal of rubbish created by their chosen trade and for the disposal of waste (grey) water which is not provided for on site. Traders would have to provide suitable working conditions which would include the use of appropriate extraction to mitigate smells.

 

"It is proposed that the site be available for May to October in any year between 11am and 2pm and 6pm to 9pm on a daily basis with the exception of the Gig Weekend which occurs as the first bank holiday in May in any year. The site must be vacated at the end of each trading day."
