Coffee trailer business to be located on the shingle area adjacent to the paved forecourt. This application may affect the setting of a listed building & is in CIL Zone 4 (Zero Rated) as other development.


The Group Head of Planning presented the report. This was followed by 1 Public Speaker.


Members then took part in a full debate on the application where a number of points were raised including:

·       it not being in keeping with the area and its impact on the picturesque nature of the village

·       creating competition with an established café and whether it was in the wrong place

·       competition not being a planning consideration

·       the possibility of adding conditions preventing cooking and seating being introduced in the future, probably with lesser business rates

·       how would the trailer be powered and would it be noisy

·       the lack of an environmental statement in the Officer’s report and concerns over litter and recycling with lack of space for bins


The Group Head of Planning provided Members with answers to all points raised during the debate.


The Committee




That the application be APPROVED CONDITIONALLY as detailed in the report and report update subject to the conditions as detailed.
