Street Trading

We issue licences which allow you to sell goods on streets listed as Consent Streets - you must not sell anything on these streets without a licence.  We have not designated any streets as 'licensed streets' or 'prohibited streets'.

Apply for a street trading licence

We can't grant  licence to a person under the age of 17.


A street trading licence is valid for one year.

  • Grant of new licence: £494
    £302 is payable on application and non-refundable. The remaining £192 will be payable when your application is approved
  • Renewal: £229
  • Occasional: £130


After you have applied

We will carry out a 28 day consultation where local residents and businesses may support or object to the application. If objections are received a committee will meet to make a decision on whether to grant the licence.

We may attach conditions to any consent to prevent:

  • obstruction to the street or danger to persons using it
  • nuisance or annoyance whether to persons using the street or otherwise
