The Street Trading provisions have been adopted throughout the Borough of Neath Port Talbot. This means that any person wishing to carry out Street Trading requires a consent from the Authority. Street Trading is defined as the selling, or exposing, or offering for sale of any article (including a living thing) in a street, which includes any road, footway, beach or other area to which the public have access without payment and land/road adjoining a Service Station.
Depending on your preferred method of trading The Council offer a street trading consent for a specific location or a street trading consent that permits roaming; trading at a specific location means that the trader can only trade at the location specified on their consent e.g. a burger van, a roaming trader will move from street to street and will only remain stationary for the period in which sales are being made and in any case for a maximum of 10 minutes at each location e.g. an ice cream trader.
The Council also offers street trading consents for “Special Events” which are valid for a few days during a specific festival or market.
The Council have adopted a street trading policy, which applicants must comply with. Applicants are advised to read the policy prior to making an applicant.
