Advice for mobile street food traders during coronavirus

Any mobile food trader, including ice-cream van traders, operating in our borough need to have street trading consent. To find out how to apply, go to our street trading consent page. This includes vendors trading in:

  • public car parks
  • recreational areas
  • residential streets

Any person trading without our permission will be committing a criminal offence and may face fines of up to £1,000. 

Traders' social distancing responsibilities

If you are a mobile food trader and meet the requirements needed to sell takeaway food, you are allowed to do so (with street trading permission).  For more information, see the government guidance on Covid-19 for businesses.
