Wymondham catering van approved, despite school opposition

Approval has been given to place a mobile catering van on a Wymondham garage forecourt.

Proposals to site the trailer at Postmill Garage, in Postmill Close, had attracted objections from the headteacher and senior staff at nearby Wymondham High School concerned that the new van would encourage students to cross a busy road and eat unhealthily.

But officers at South Norfolk Council had recommended the plans be given the go-ahead believing no significant highway safety issues would arise.

Councillors voted in favour of the application during a meeting of the authority's planning committee last Wednesday.
