A food stall owner has been given permission to use a horsebox for his business despite concerns about the size of the outlet. Paul Coster, who runs Crave Street Food, had applied to alter his street trading licence in Truro City Centre.
Mr Coster, who serves hot dogs and snacks in Pydar Street, currently operates from a gazebo in the street but had asked Cornwall Council to alter this so he could use a trailer instead. However, his application had attracted objections from Truro City Council and Truro BID which were concerned about the size of the trailer and whether it was suitable for the pitch in Pydar Street.
Mr Coster told a meeting of Cornwall Council’s street trading sub-committee that the horsebox he wanted to use was slightly longer than the gazebo but was narrower so would actually provide more space for pedestrians.
