Street Trading Consent Determination - Nidge's Artisan Pizza Kitchen pdf icon PDF 230 KB

To consider an appeal of a decision to refuse a Street Trading Consent.

Additional documents:


Consideration was given to a report of the Environmental Health Manager to determine a Street Trading Consent.

The applicant proposed to operate as a mobile food trader one day per month (unspecified day of the week) between 4pm - 8pm at the car park adjacent to The Hexagon, Andover, SP10 3PR.

The application was refused on 13 October 2022 under delegated powers by the Environmental Health Manager who, in making that decision to refuse, took account of the Council’s Street Trading Consent Policy, an objection received jointly from the three elected members for the Millway Ward, and the fact that no further representation in response to the objection was received by the applicant within 7 days of notification of his preliminary decision to refuse the application. 

The applicant had, since the refusal of the application, submitted a written representation in full response to the objection and indicated his wish for the decision to be reviewed by the Licensing Committee, in accordance with the Council’s Street Trading Consent policy.

All relevant parties were given the opportunity to present their case.


1.  That consent be granted, with the proviso that the mobile food vehicle does not arrive at the site until 4:30 pm and that, although no condition would be attached to the consent to restrict the precise trading location within the car park (in accordance with the second recommendation of the report), a clear preference was stated for the vehicle to be sited on the opposite side of the car park to the shop where possible.
