Conservative-run Guildford Council is promoting healthy eating by warning snack vans found in busy lay-bys to include salads and low fat yoghurts of face losing their street trader’s licence. One van owner says the lorry drivers and builders who represent his client base do not want salads. Guildford say it also about grilling not frying.
What does everyone think? I think I need to withold judgement as I don’t know how sought after these pitches are. If the vans are driven out of business than that hardly results in more choice but rather in us being left hungry. On the other hand if lots of people are clamouring to trade on these sites then perhaps it is reasonable for Guildford to insist on a move upmarket. Would be pleased to hear from anyone in Guildford who knows the background.
