Do I Need Planning Permission to Trade From Private Car Park
I purchased a trailer which i have spent quite a lot of money refurbishing it. I now have the relevant gas and electric certificates. I have Food and Hygiene level 2 and environmental health have inspected my van and said i am registered to trade.
I rent 2 car parking places in a private car park that belongs to my landlord who owns a furniture shop. He uses the car park for his customer parking and it is not open to the public.
He also rents a couple of spaces to people that work close by. The reason i rent two car parking places is that when i spoke to environmental health they said i would have to move the trailer daily or it would be permanent and then i would need planning permission.
I plan to do shows and boot sales some weekends so it would not be permanent.My local councils planning have now informed me that i now need to apply for planning permission for the change of use of a car parking place to a trading place.
I do have my landlords full permission and he does not want them two car parking places for parking which is why he rents them to me. My plan is to trade from one place where i can be seen by the public and the at night push it back out of sight to the other space.
Many thanks Julie.
