Application for a Street Trading Renewal - Sarin Express pdf icon PDF 231 KB

Additional documents:




Jhini Mukherjee, Licensing Officer, introduced the application for a renewal of a shop front trading license for a 2.0 metre shop front display outside Sarin Express, located at 212 High Street, Harlington, Hayes, UB3 5DS.


The application was submitted by Mr Manpal Singh and he was represented by his agent Mr Panchal.


The applicant sought to renew the license to display fruits and vegetables, various household goods, charcoal and water.


The shop front projected 2 meters outwards from the boundary of the shop. The original permission was granted on 29 October 2021, and since then the license had been renewed four times, each for a six-month period.


As with every other renewal, this application was consulted with the Ward Councillors, the Council’s Highways team and the Antisocial, Behaviour and Environment team. The purpose of these consultations was to seek assurances that the applicant’s proposals satisfied the requirements of the legislation and that they were suitable to be licensed. This renewal had received objections from five residents. Two addenda included further submissions of photographs of the shop front.


There were no breaches of Street Trading license conditions, and it was recommended that the Sub-Committee grant the license. Regarding the length of time that the license could be granted for, officers referred Members to Appendix 3, which was the Street Trading policy where under paragraphs 4.1 and 4.2 there was further information on suitable license durations. The Sub-Committee may wish to attach additional conditions to the license to deal with the concerns raised. Officers invited the Sub-Committee to determine the application.


The Chair asked why there had been so many visits to the premises. Officers noted that visits had been ongoing since 2021. Because the premises had attracted a number of complaints, every six months when up for renewal site visits were carried out. Some of these visits were conducted by officers who had now left the Council.


The Chair asked if any representations had been received from any Responsible Authorities. Officers confirmed that there were none, however an email from Councillor June Nelson had been received on the previous day. This contained a photograph taken by a resident and had been shared with the Sub-Committee. The Chair confirmed that all parties had seen a copy of this submission, and that all parties were happy to accept it.


Members noted a pole that was holding up the canopy in one of the photographs, and asked if this pole was within the 2 meters. It was noted that there were two poles outside the shop. One was Council property; the other was holding up the canopy. The pole holding up the canopy was thought to be within 2 meters. It was noted that the license could be conditioned around space between the pole and the shop front. It was further noted that the pole was temporary and only used to hold up the canopy during rain/ adverse weather.
