Dear Brighton and Hove City Council,

I understand that council workers have rebelled against having their diets controlled by council apparatchiks, and have made it clear that as adults, responsible for themselves, they do not welcome 'do gooders' interfering in their personal business.

(reference: http://www.theargus.co.uk/news/9165595.B... )

However I also understand that pupils at certain schools under the control of Brighton and Hove, unable to defend themselves against such social engineering, are having 'Meat Free Mondays' imposed on them.

(reference: http://www.meatfreemondays.com/news/brig... )

Can you give me any information you have on which schools are part of the 'meat free monday' scheme and who in the council is responsible for imposing on children a life style that most adults not only reject, but object to?

Yours faithfully,

Paul Perrin

Freedom Of Information, Brighton and Hove City Council

Regarding your request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000: Ref: foi/575/11

Please find set out below the information in response to the above
request:

Request:

"I understand that the Amex Community Stadium in Falmer has been granted
a monopoly on trading in various items on match days.

I understand this monopoly is to be enacted by banning street trading
within a mile of the stadium on match days.

Such a monopoly will obviously be very valuable to the owners of the
stadium.

Can you provide me with information you have on the financial implications
to the council of granting this monopoly?

Particularly any information on the financial benefit that the stadium
will get from this monopoly, and how that benefit will be passed onto or
shared with the council in return for this favour.

Yours faithfully

Paul Perrin".

Response:

"Street trading in Brighton & Hove is governed by the Local Government
(Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, Section 3 and Schedule 4. On 27
November 2008, the Licensing Committee (Non Licensing Act 2003) received a
report which sought permission to go out to consultation on street
trading. Link
[1]http://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/ieLi....
Consultation then followed which involved residents and businesses
(including existing street traders) in Brighton & Hove, Police and Highway
Authority, Economic Development and Regeneration regarding the corporate
markets policy, Events Office, Seafront Office (including Seafront Traders
Association), Trading Standards, Children's Trust, City Clean, Legal,
Finance, Ward Councillors, City Centre and Hove Business Fora, Trader
Associations including North Laines Traders Association, Upper Gardener
Street Traders Association and Community Associations including the North
Laines Community Association.

Following on from this consultation, a further report was submitted to the
Licensing Committee (Non Licensing Act 2003) in April 2009
[2]http://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/ieLi...
following which in line with LGMPA 1982, statutory advertisements were
placed in The Argus and City News seeking representations. Anyone could
respond to the consultation and any representations received were fed into
a final report which was submitted to the Licensing Committee (Non
Licensing Act 2003) in November 2009
[3]http://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/ieLi...
and following on from that, the current street trading policy was set.
[4]http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/index.cf.... As you
will see from the Street Trading Policy, committee agreed the Policy which
includes that there would be no street trading at any time within one mile
from the Amex Stadium at Falmer. The revised policy came into effect on
31 January 2010.

There were no financial implications to the council revising street
trading policy in line with representations received.

We cannot comment on information on the finances of the Amex Community
Stadium - Mr Perrin would need to ask them direct".
