Street trading consent traders application (non special event)

Key facts:

To avoid disappointment, complete and valid applications for temporary trading consents should be submitted with at least 10 working days notice.

We are unable to guarantee that we will be able to process an application received after 10 working days days prior to proposed trading date.

Please fill in this form to apply to trade on streets in Lichfield District - whether that's a fixed pitch every week (e.g. a burger van), a mobile unit (such as a travelling ice cream van), or an occasional street pitch.

If you want to trade at a special event (for example as part of an advertised festival) please apply to trade at a special event.

As part of this form you will be asked to provide:

  • Details of your stall/vehicle, including exact measurements and a photo.
  • Details of your public liability insurance (including certificate).
  • Details of your food registration and hygiene rating (including certificate); food businesses only.
  • If applying to trade from a fixed or specific location you must include site plan showing the exact location you wish to trade from. If approved, the plan will form part of your consent and trading must take place from the location specified

It is not possible to save your application and complete it later, so please ensure you have these electronic documents (word, .pdf. .jpg) to hand before you begin.
