Fast food project banned in a city in England because people have “excess weight”


Bill Stevens, chair of the council’s planning committee, said: ‘On the main high street in St Budeaux there are quite a lot of takeaways already so it’s not as though there isn’t already a choice and that’s why the Plymouth Plan is taking these steps.” In fact, around 60 per cent of adults in Plymouth have been classed as overweight or obese, according to Public Health England. This includes a mediated couple, Stephen Beer and Michelle Coombe, who say they are too fat to work, and live in the same area of Plymouth where the application was submitted. Today the city is home to around 250,000 people, making it the 27th most populous built-up area in England and Wales.
