Street Trading Consents

If you wish to sell goods or food on the street in this district, you must first be granted a Street Trading Consent by the Licensing Authority.

A 'street' is anywhere that the public can access without payment. This may even be on private land.

We do not have allocated trading spots in this area. You would need to identify and assess a suitable site for your business, and a consultation process is undertaken prior to a consent being issued.

The district is set into three 'zones' for the purposes of Street Trading and fees are reliant upon these zones. Our zone map identifies Zones 1 and 2; the remainder of the district is classed as Zone 3.

Alternatively you may wish to operate a mobile trading business. Due to parking restrictions in the town centre of Stratford-upon-Avon, it is unlikely that a mobile street trading consent would be granted for Zone 1. Mobile street traders are conditioned to a maximum 15-minute stay in any one street.

Applications are only deemed valid if supplied with all the necessary items on the application checklist and the relevant fee.

Markets / Special Events

If you are holding a market event, we will issue a Street Trading Consent to the event organiser instead of each individual stall. The fee for this type of consent is reliant upon the size of the market, which is categorised as follows;

  • Category 1 - up to 20 traders
  • Category 2 - between 21 and 49 traders
  • Category 3 - between 50 and 75 traders
  • Category 4 - between 76 and 99 traders
  • Category 5 - 100 + traders

A 28-day consultation must be undertaken so please apply in good time prior to the event.
