Consultation for schools’ ice cream van ban



A bid to ban ice cream and burger vans from approaching Denbighshire schools will go to a public consultation.

Councillors voted on Wednesday to allow officers more time to develop their new proposals as part of the county’s street trading policy.

Under the plans, food vans may be barred from going within 100 metres of schools and colleges between 7.30am and 6pm, unless they are given permission from the school.

Any traders caught breaking the guidelines – including moving at least 50 metres every 20 minutes – could face losing their licence or facing suspension.

The chairman of the planning committee, Cefyn Williams, told the planning committee at County Hall that everything was ”up in the air until it comes down again.”
