SBC Review of Street Trading Policy

SBC Review of Street Trading Policy

This consultation will run for 8 weeks and all paper and electronic responses must be received by 5.00pm on Friday, 29th March 2022.
Under Schedule 4 of The Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 the Council can manage street trading by designating streets as consent streets, licence streets or prohibited streets. The current Street Trading Policy for Swindon Borough Council was first introduced in 2013 and was last reviewed following consultation in 2019.
Following increased interest in the use of markets and trading in the Town Centre, it has been considered appropriate that a consultation exercise be carried out to seek views as to whether the Street Trading Policy is ‘fit for purpose’ three years on with specific consultation on:
• Designation of streets across the Borough including those identified as ‘under consideration’;
• The current restrictions on markets and their locations;
• Individual traders being able to trade within the town centre outside of a market which may be during identified times of the year.
• The fee structure for Street Trading.
As you have been identified as a stakeholder or person with interest in this matter, you are formally invited to take part in this consultation if you so wish. The consultation is open to the public and this information may be shared.
The results of this consultation will be presented to the Licensing Committee for consideration on 29th June 2022.
