Dear Lancaster City Council,
Morcambe ice cream vans must have a depot or a garage where they re-stock, keep refrigerators and service their vehicles. Do they pay business rates on these premesis and have they been eligable for covid19 related business support grants?
Dear Malcolm Gelsthorpe,
Freedom of Information Request - Ref: FOI 3746
I write to confirm receipt of your request for information, which was
received on 25th November 2020 and is now being processed under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Your request has been given the unique
reference number as stated in the subject header above.
I have to inform you that we are unable to process your request without
further clarification, detailed below:
You have asked about Morecambe Ice Cream Vans.
Is ‘Morecambe Ice Cream Vans’ and individual company? Or are you enquiring
about all ice cream vans registered in Morecambe?
It is unlikely we would hold details of all ice cream van businesses
unless they have a business premises.
I think it is unlikely that they all have depots or garages, as they may
just operate from their homes.
Please be aware that the statutory time limit for our response commences
from the day we receive your reply, so any delay in clarifying this matter
for us may lead to a delay in our response.
If you wish to discuss any of the above please contact me. Please remember
to quote the FOI reference number above in any future communications.
