Subsidised street trading fees

The council subsidies the street trading fees for traders who attend certain 'special events' that bring benefits to the district.

To qualify for the subsidy for your traders, your event must:

  • have a minimum of ten stalls and have the potential to deliver significant economic benefit to the district.
  • you must be able to demonstrate how the event will deliver economic benefits to the district.
  • you must agree that they will promote the event and outline/agree the marketing they will deliver up front.
  • you must provide a copy of the previous years’ accounts (where applicable).

If granted, a subsidy can reduce the amount of street trading fees your traders will pay - find out more about street trading charges.
