Food Trailer Business Outside Pet Shop Business?
I am a pet shop owner with a 15 yr lease.
We have an 18ft by 16ft forecourt off the pavement Inc in our boundary. I want to set up a catering trailer instead of parking my van outside my shop.
I wrote to Camden council who have replied saying that I would need planning permission?
They also said it would be highly unlikely to get this outside a pet shop as it does not compliment the business.
Is this correct or are they talking about a fixed or semi fixed kiosk.I really would like to set up this food trailer as it would probably do well.
It would be left at the site. Hope you can clarify the law for me. The aim is to provide teas, coffees and some very high quality foods outside my busy pet centre (probably the nicest pet centre in London)
To supply my staff and customers with food and drink. Also to cater for locals who go to nearby expensive coffee shops, supermarkets etc.
There is local competition but the site is not next to any of them and may prove to be a more convenient location to obtain a decent drink at a decent price.
As for food we can't decide, it could be the patisserie type croissants /quality burgers, as well we thought salt beef bar on weekend with all the usual bits.
The other easy option if I do not need planning is to rent out the site for a weekly sum!
Thanks for your time and thoughts
