A SHOWDOWN just outside Locking between the owners of two burger vans has been avoided.

A SHOWDOWN just outside Locking between the owners of two burger vans has been avoided.

North Somerset Council has decided to turn down an application for a second fast food outlet at a lay-by near The Helicopter Museum off the A371 earlier this week.

Had permission been granted to Simply Delicious by the unitary authority's licensing committee, there would have been two burger vans at the lay-by from 4-6pm daily.

The committee received two objections, one from Locking ward member Councillor Elfan Ap Rees and the other from the current trader at the site, Snack in the Mouth.

Cllr Ap Rees, also the council's deputy leader, said: "This lay-by is close to the village and sound travels easily to nearby houses across the open fields.

"Night time trading here would undoubtedly cause a nuisance in this respect, particularly if groups congregate late at night."
