Fast track street trading licences

The Licensing Authority have adapted their street trading policy in order to assist local traders to bounce back from the strain caused by COVID-19. To enable this, the council has established a new fast track street trading licence.

This licence has been created to speed up the process for new applications made during this unprecedented period for those premises who wish to start street trading.

All Fast Track Street Trading Licences will last for a maximum period of 3 months. 

The standard terms and conditions for street trading licences will still apply to these licences. Additional conditions may be attached on any licence granted by the licensing team on a case by case basis where appropriate.

Please note that despite all fast track street trading licences being issued for a maximum period of 3 months, premises covered by the proposed Planning and Business Bill may be eligible for an extension of their licence period once it has been made Law.  The proposed Bill will cover premises that sell food and drink to members of the public.  We will contact all the Fast Track Street Trading Licences holders that this Bill affects, once the act has been passed

Any premises that does not sell food or drink to members of the public and that wishes to continue street trading after their interim 3 month licence expired, would have to apply for a new temporary street trading licence which can last for a maximum of 6 months.
