Street Trading Consent
Street Trading - Designation of Consent Streets Schedule 4 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982
Breckland Council decided to amend existing street trading controls by designating all streets in its area as 'Consent Streets' as of 1 March 2013.
A Consent Street is a street in which street trading can only take place if the consent of the local authority has first been obtained.
Street Trading is defined as the selling or exposing or offering for sale of any article (including a living thing) in a street. For the purposes of this requirement the term 'street' means any road, footway, beach or other area to which the public have access without payment.
Anyone who wishes to operate as a street trader in Breckland will be required to hold a valid Street Trading Consent.
It is an offence to operate as a street trader without this prior approval.
Details of the scheme and those activities affected areavailable on our Street Trading Guidance and Conditions page.
