Norfolk County Council Trading Standards are highlighting the latest consumer scams in Norfolk.
Applications must be submitted at least 35 days before the proposed trading date or dates.
Applicants themselves should look around for what they consider to be a suitable site. The site must be in a position that will not cause obstruction to pedestrians. If such a site is found, a completed application form must be returned, together with a plan showing the exact place the applicant wishes to trade from and a photograph of the stall, van or other container. Applicants must determine and specify the ownership of any piece of land proposed as a site (i.e. Council or Private). In the case of private land, a letter signed by the owners stating they have no objection to their property being used for the purpose concerned must accompany the application and plan.
The Council is under no duty to grant a Street Trading Consent and need not specify grounds for refusal. There is no right of appeal against the refusal to grant consent. The application form will be sent to the Police for vetting purposes.
Before any Street Trading Consent which involves the preparation and sale of food is granted, the vehicle, stall or other container must be inspected and approved by the District Council’s Commercial Team. Registration as a food business will also be required. Any potential food traders should contact the Commercial Team on 01263 516008 at an early stage for technical advice and information.
The Council requires all persons who trade in designated streets (Consent Streets) with the Council’s consent to be in possession of Public Liability Insurance cover. The amount of cover may vary depending upon the nature of the trading proposed, and applicants are advised to contact the Licensing Team prior to application to obtain details of the cover required. Details of this insurance will be required upon application for a Street Trading Consent.
The Council will only issue Trading Consents to individuals; any Company must therefore apply through a named individual.
No motorised stalls or vehicles will be permitted in pedestrianised streets.
