Time is running out for takeaway vendors to apply for two new pitches on Gorleston seafront.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is inviting businesses to apply for two newly available mobile concession units at South Marine Parade car park

Businesses offering retail or takeaway hot food have up until May 26 to submit their applications.

The successful traders will be able to operate between March 1 and September 30 each year, but the council has said it will also consider several shorter tenancies.

The new slots will sit alongside Barista Buoy and the long-serving ice cream van.

Daniel Candon, chairman of the council's economic development committee, said: “This is a great opportunity for small, mobile businesses to serve visitors at an attractive and popular seaside location for the upcoming summer season.

“We’re looking to offer a variety of traders for our residents and visitors to purchase from when vising Gorleston seafront, therefore there will be no further ice cream or coffee sales, as these concessions are already occupied.”
