Street trading licences

A street includes any road, footway or other area that is within seven metres of a road or footway and is not enclosed and to which the public have access without payment.

To apply for consent for street trading:

  • Read the icon street trading local policy document [54.26KB] . This contains the conditions under which you will have to operate, and the lists of prohibited and consent streets.

  • Choose a consent street on which to trade.

  • Seek planning permission on your chosen consent street from our planning department, who will be able to inform you of the costs involved.

  • Once planning permission is granted a period of consultation will occur with external parties. At this stage you must:

Complete the  icon application form [168.57KB]
Provide two passport photographs.
Provide evidence of public liability insurance.
Send all these to the Environmental Health and Licensing Services along with the current licence fee of £484.00.

  • If the proposal is refused then the annual fee for street trading consent, less an administrative fee of £10.00, will be refunded.

This process will take at least three months to complete.
