Scaffold Licenses, South Molton

 “The information I am requesting relates to, 103 East Street, SOUTH MOLTON Devon EX36 3DB. This property was also known previously as the Stove Centre.

I recognise and will understand if the relevant records have not have been retained for the whole of the period highlighted.

My questions are:-

Since 1998, has a pavement licence authorising the erection of scaffolding outside of the above property been issued by Devon County Council?

Devon County Council only holds information dating back to 2007.  We do not, therefore, have records of any licences granted between 1998 and 2007.

From our records, there have been six applications for scaffolding outside 103 East Street, South Molton since 2007. Five were issued, but one was never issued.

If such a licence has been granted, to whom was the licence granted?

The licence was granted to South Molton Scaffolding.

Was any licence fee subjected to Value Added Tax?

VAT is not applicable for scaffolding licences.

What was the fee paid for each relevant licence? and What were the specific dates for which any scaffold pavement licence was granted?
