A PARISH council is concerned over a take-away van which it claims is contributing to anti-social behaviour.

At a full council meeting on Monday evening, Melbourn Parish Council agreed that the licence of a kebab van, which parks in the village car park, should not be re-newed when it expires in the spring.

Councillor Clive Purbrook said: "The owners are not committing an offence as far as we can see, but the presence of the van causes noise and litter and other anti-social behaviour."

Cllr Purbrook recommended that the parish clerk write to South Cambridgeshire District Council asking it to take into consideration the alleged effects the kebab van has on anti-social behaviour when renewing its licence.

The parish council will also write to the police asking if they think the kebab van has an effect on anti-social behaviour in the village.

It wants the police to support its case and write to the district council, too, showing their concern.
