Ice-cream vans in Camden – Public consultation 

We want to ensure that ice cream trading across the borough is fair and safe.  We are working to tackle ice cream van engine idling and unregulated trading - education, enforcement and regulation. During Summer 2019, ‘No unlicensed ice cream trading’ signage was posted on the 40 streets prohibited for ice cream sales in Camden. Enforcement resources and patrols have been increased in prohibited ice cream sale streets. We issue fines and move on ice cream traders operating in the area.

Consultations will also take place to discuss the development of six areas within the borough where Camden will experiment with licensed ice cream trading permitted throughout the day. Vans would be allowed to trade so long as they operate with their engines switched off as well as a number of other licence requirements to include healthy choices and clear pricing, all designed to deal with common issues raised by residents and organisations.  

More information will be available soon at https://consultations.wearecamden.org/
