Street Trading Policy Review

The Council has designated all streets in South Gloucestershire as Consent Streets for street trading purposes. The effect of this designation is that street trading in any street in South Gloucestershire is prohibited, subject to the legal exemptions, without first obtaining a consent to trade from the Council.


South Gloucestershire Council is currently consulting on the revised draft Street Trading Policy and corresponding Application Guidelines, prior to approval by the Regulatory Committee.


The Street Trading Policy and Application Guidelines 2019 – 2022 have been developed to assist persons applying for Street Trading Consents in South Gloucestershire. The Policy and associated guidelines set out the Council’s standards for determining applications for, and enforcement of, street trading activities in the South Gloucestershire area.



We are keen to receive feedback on the Policy and Application Guidelines - this consultation will be open until Wednesday 20th March 2019

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
