Public Consultation - Draft Street Trading Consent Policy 2017

Have your say - we welcome your views on the draft Street Trading Consent Policy and the proposed designation of prohibited streets.

In preparation for the introduction a new Street Trading Licensing Scheme, Basildon Council is seeking views on its proposal to designate a street as either a consent or prohibited street within Basildon Borough Council's boundary.

The Street Trading Licensing Scheme, which will operate across the entire borough, is to be governed by a Street Trading Consent Policy, which will set out how applications for consent to street trade should be made, how they will be processed and what sort of consultations will be made before determining an application.

Under the terms of the new scheme Street Trading refers to the selling of, exposing of, or the offering for sale of any articles (including a living thing) in any street.  It is proposed that Street Trading will not be allowed anywhere within the Borough of Basildon without proper consent being granted by Basildon Council.

The full, draft policy provides much more detail on the application process, consultations on applications, objections to an application, criteria for determining applications, approval of consents and conditions, the issue of consents, the Licensing Sub-Committee, refusal of applications, enforcement of the policy and general information about Street Trading Consents.
