Westminster Council introduces new laws for food delivery drivers

Eateries using delivery services will be forced to apply for planning permission under the rules.

According to City A.M., the planning laws are being introduced as part of the London council's new City Plan, if deliveries become the bulk of their trade. It follows Westminster's recent successful action against a Westbourne Grove branch of Nando's, where 25 complaints were received about "large groups of moped delivery drivers gathering and waiting for orders".

Under new rules, restaurants will have to apply for planning permission for the change of use and demonstrate that they minimise disruption in local neighbourhoods.
