Burger van approved

AN APPLICATION to site a burger van near a Clevedon sports centre and industrial estate has been granted permission.

Colin Beresford-Slinn applied for street-trading consent to run his Super Mario’s Burger Bar van from a lay-by in Strode Road, near to the junction with Southern Way.

As a result, three letters of objection were sent to the unitary authority with concerns raised about the amount of litter the van could generate as well as the fact there are no toilet facilities on the van.

However, in his application, Mr Beresford-Slinn, who used to run the van from Harbour Road Industrial Estate in Portishead, explained that the lack of toilet facilities is overcome by the fact he only lives 300m from the Strode Road site.

At a meeting of a North Somerset Council licensing sub-committee on August 9 the application was approved.

This means the burger van can be now operated between 7.30am-3pm on Mondays to Fridays and from 8am-2pm on Saturdays. It would not be allowed at the site on Sundays.
