15 April 2021 – The Street Trading Consent application for the Bird Box in Chipping Sodbury has been withdrawn. We understand the Bird Box will be operating in a fashion that means it does not require Street Trading Consent under Schedule 4 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982.
