4. Stage 1 - submission of the application

  1. In addition to a completed and signed street trading application you will need to submit the following documents:
    1. 1 copy of a map of the trading site. The map should clearly identify the proposed site position by marking the site boundary with a red line. The map should include the nearest residential and commercial properties to the trading site. Applications for mobile trading consents (e.g. fish and chip vans) must provide specific routes and the locations they wish to trade from.
    2. A colour photograph showing the stall, vehicle or barrow which is to be used from the front back and sides. It is not necessary to show what is being sold.
    3. A copy of the certificate of insurance that covers the street trading activity for third party and public liability risks with an appropriate level of cover (this will usually be a minimum cover level of £2,000,000).
    4. Evidence of a current Food Hygiene Rating Scheme score of at least 3 from the relevant home Authority (to include which authority) where there is the sale of food or drink.
  2. An event organizer may apply for a single block consent for an event where there is to be a number of traders (e.g. farmers markets) using the application form. The event organizer will need to obtain confirmation from all stall holders carrying out a street trading activity that they comply with the requirements of 15(c) and 15(d) above, along with the detail of what is being sold and photographs of the stall and these forms will need to be provided to the Council as part of the application or prior to the event commencing. The relevant form for the individual stall holders can be found here. The event organiser in receipt of a block consent will become responsible for all the individual trading activities and for ensuring that they comply with the block consent conditions. A failure to do so may result in the consent being revoked or a subsequent application being refused.
