Street trading licences

Our Street Trading Policy is currently under review and while this is in progress we are not able to issue any new street trading permits.  We will update this page when we have more information.  Any trading outside a premises within 7m of the Highway without a licence is at your own risk and you may be fined.


Street and pavement trading licences are normally issued to persons wishing to carry out commercial activities on the Public Realm. 

If you have a commercial premises and wish to extend your own trade onto the adjacent public pavement, visit the pavement trading page
