A LICENSING officer from East Devon District Council will be invited to talk to Seaton Town Council to help councillors consider street trading in the town.At their meeting on Monday, September 15, councillors heard a report from town clerk Philip Higginson about the current situation in the town.It had been proposed that councillors consider requesting East Devon District Council re-designate certain streets in Seaton as consent streets for street trading, where that activity is currently prohibited.However, following a long discussion, mayor Councillor Sandra Semple said: "Should we ask John Tippin (licensing manager at EDDC) to talk to us, as we seem to have more questions than answers at the moment?"Councillors agreed to the suggestion and asked that he be invited to a future meeting.
