Planning Permission - Mobile Catering
by hobo's catering
Hello there have just sited my bus (live in)& trailer alongside the a35 road in Dorset(Dorset hate catering trailers), we are registered with the council & environmental health have given us the okay.
The site is private land & we have permission to be here. We are seven meters back from roadside & there is a slip road on to large lay-by and an exit with good view of road (we have put no entry exit only) not to encourage people turning in from other side of the road. This site is an old motel & petrol station.
We have been trading 2 weeks, with no sign of highway agency etc, but was told by the environmental officer that the council are going to tell the land owner that he needs planning permission to have us there.
Do you need planning permission if we are not permanent as we are only intending to work for the summer season & also have events at weekends so will be mobile..?
Hope you can help... many thanks hobo's catering.
