Licensing

Lisa len made this Freedom of Information request to East Renfrewshire Licensing Board

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear East Renfrewshire Licensing Board,

Please could you supply me with the following information regarding licensing.

Q1. Why do applicants for mobile catering vehicles need to apply for planning consent and also have to take out advert in news papers.
I believe this stems from one of your employees misinterpretation of the proper way to do things.
Please consult your legal department before responding, as i am prepared to take this to the ombudsman.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Donaldson

Walker, Ian, East Renfrewshire Licensing Board

For the attention of Mr A Donaldson.

 

Your request to the Councils licensing section has been forwarded to me.
In most instances I am aware of the Councils planning service consider the
siting of a moblie catering van as a changing a section of what is either
part of the public road way or footway to a hot food establishment. This
is considered a change of use and therefore planning permission is
required.

 

You refer in your e-mail to  what potential misinterpretation on the part
of a council employee. Have you been provided with advise on this aspect
already?

Dear Walker, Ian,

I believe you may be the person i spoke to previously who worked in Dumbarton Council and thought up this ridiculous theory, adding unnecessary cost to applicants for licensing and brought your theory to East Renfrewshire Council.
I believe your superiors must be unaware of your views, as i think they are totally ridiculous.
I will endeavour to fix this.

Yours sincerely,
Andy Donaldson
