Do I need a licence?
Street trading and special events
If you would like to trade from a stall or mobile unit on a street/layby (either an occasional or long-term pitch - for example an ice cream or burger van) you will need to apply for a general trader street trading licence.
If you are a street-based event organiser and want to run an event on district streets, find out about how to apply for special event status. If you would like to trade on any streets in the district as part of your event, your street traders will need to apply for a street trading licence, even if the street is privately owned - find out how to apply for a special event street trading licence.
If you want to hold a private community based street party or fete, find out more.
