Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1982) Amendment to Street Trading Conditions

Consultation now closed.

Reading Borough Council has the opportunity to lead the way and set a positive benchmark for other councils to follow with regard to switching to bio-degradable and recyclable food packaging.  There is a real push from smart business and ethically minded consumers for councils to promote this type of initiative. Making the switch to bio-materials will help towards offsetting environmental damage, and ensure used packaging is properly disposed of. Such an achievement would be possible for the Reading area.

Our Regulatory Services/Corporate plan has identified this as a service priority for 2015/2016

We asked traders to comment on this proposal and the consultation ended on 30 January 2016.
