Plans to locate a vintage mobile catering unit outside a Methodist church have been approved, with conditions, by council.
Burnley Borough Council has approved the application to locate the mobile food van, which will serve street food, outside of the Central Methodist Church on Hargreaves Street in the city.
The vintage catering unit will be located at the corner of Ormerod and Hargreaves streets with offered hours of operation from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
The mobile unit would have approximate dimensions of 5350mm (length) x 2280mm (width) x 2300mm (height), would not be physically attached to any other structure, and would be located away from any other nearby structures.
The request, which was filed by Keira Crossley, was approved within the week of December 13 and stated that the trailer would be brought to the site daily in the back of a vehicle, left in place throughout the day. during negotiation, and at the end of each working day, the unit was picked up and taken off site.
The introduction of the mobile catering unit on the facade of the Central Methodist Church will have no impact on the street scene, especially since it is a temporary device so that the character of the area is not affected.
There were no objections to the request, but after consultation with the Lancashire County Council Motorway Service, a curb was put in place to allow access to the site.
