Last updated

When considering an application for a Street Trading Consent, the council will take into account the following matters when reaching its decision:

  1. Responses from consultees and other interested parties.
  2. The proposed siting and design of the street trading vehicle and whether it enhances the vitality of the shopping area within the immediate vicinity.
  3. Any potential obstruction to the free flow of pedestrians or of vehicles in the street, with special regard for the visually impaired.
  4. Road safety, either arising from the siting of the street trading vehicle or as a result of customer visiting or leaving the site, including existing traffic orders and waiting restrictions.
  5. The nature of the proposed goods to be traded and whether this will create conflict with the trade of adjacent, established shops.
  6. Whether the proposed siting of the street trading vehicle obstructs the frontage of adjacent established shops.
  7. The numbers, distribution and location of existing street trading consents.
  8. The likelihood of excessive noise, odour and litter being generated.
  9. Whether the proposal would conflict with any other policies of the council.
