Additional documents:


The Senior Licensing Officer introduced the report on the revised draft Street Trading Policy, which had been updated in recognition of the feedback received from the Committee from the draft’s consideration at the 18 June 2020 meeting.


It was confirmed that the 8-week consultation proposed was considered a reasonable time frame and that the application fee reflected the use of officer time in assessing the application. In relation to Community and Charitable Events, the previous wording used had been removed due to legal constraints that prohibited its use, but that the use of multi-user consents and further considerations to waive the fees could be considered.




1.  The revised Street Trading Policy, attached at Appendix 2 of the report, be agreed for consultation purposes;


2.  The draft amended fee structure which introduces a non-refundable consultation application fee, be agreed;


3.  Delegated authority be given to the Head of Housing and Community Services to make minor amendment to the policy; and


4.  Following the 8-week consultation period, the policy together with a summary of key consultation comments is brought back to the licensing committee for consideration, be agreed.
