Consultations on street trading changes

We are consulting on a new street trading resolution and a new street trading policy for our borough.

Street trading resolution consultation

We are consulting on plans to designate all streets across Guildford as "consent" streets. This means that trading would not be allowed on any street across the borough without Council permission. 

This would enable us to control trading more effectively to protect the public and ensure that traders meet all necessary standards.

The new street trading resolution would replace the icon current list of consent and prohibited streets [54.26KB] across our borough.

We want to get the views of members of the public, stakeholders and local businesses about these changes.

Survey

Have your say by filling in the online survey which will take about five minutes to complete. 

Any comments made may be published by the Council in anonymised form.

The consultation runs from 27 October for 28 days and will close at 4:30pm on 24 November.

Street trading policy consultation

We are consulting on a new street trading policy. This replaces the icon current policy [54.26KB] last reviewed in 2008. 

View online the icon draft street trading policy. [93.46KB]

The policy aims to create a street trading environment that:

  • complements premises-based trading

  • is sensitive to the needs of residents

  • provides diversity and consumer choice

  • enhances the character and safety of the local environment.

We want to get the views of members of the public, stakeholders and local businesses about these changes.
