We are seeking residents views on a draft Street Trading policy.
At present the Council has 15 “adopted” Street Trading locations, which has resulted in a limited number of opportunities for those looking to operate a business.
Street Trading is not permitted anywhere within the District, except for 15 adopted locations. This has resulted in a number of unlicensed traders who have operated without Street Trading Consent (either from private land or public land) for quite some time.
The Council hopes that the draft Policy will ensure that there is an even playing field for all Traders. That Traders can apply for locations they want to trade from rather than prescribed locations. In turn this will result in a wider choice of goods and services on offer to the general public.
Full details of the policy and how you can respond can be found on our website.
