A burger van in east Reading has been forced to shut after the council refused planning permission for the van to stay on the site on London Road.

Just Burger, which set up near Cemetery Junction in November, has now moved after Reading Borough Council’s (RBC) planning officers rejected the application.

The council said the siting of the burger van would result in “dangerous movements on the London Road A4 to the detriment of pedestrians and cyclists and the free flow of traffic”.

They said it would attract car trips and traffic movements into an unsuitable area conflicting with traffic movements from 5 Stars Car Wash next door, which itself does not have planning permission.

Planning officers also said the noise and odour assessments submitted by the applicant were insufficient, failing to demonstrate the proposal would not cause harm.

The burger van received attention on social media for its bizarre menu, where you pay individually for each part of your menu, including a 50p charge each for the top and bottom bun and 25p for ice.

Just Burger’s owner Mark Wright is now looking for a second location in Reading for the burger van, which is cash-free, with orders only available via the app.

There is another Just Burger site in Chelmsford.
