4.2       Mr Wynne, Licensing Enforcement Officer advised that the Craigburn layby had been used by a previous catering van for a number of years and no objections or issues had been brought to the Council’s attention during that period.  The layby was vacant and Mr Ates had applied for and been granted the appropriate permissions from the Roads Department.   Mr Wynne went onto explain that the Friends of Leadburn Community Woodland (FLCW) owned the land adjoining the Craigburn lay-by and over the last 15 months the woodland had seen a marked increase in visitors using the layby to enjoy walks in the vicinity.  The FLCW had raised concerns with regard to littering from the catering van.  Police Scotland had no comments to make on the application.

4.3       On being invited to address the Committee, Mr Ates explained that he intended to serve morning rolls, hot drinks and soft drinks from the catering van and had agreed to provide bins and to clear all litter pertaining to his business each day.
