We are seeking your comments on the review of the Street Trading Policy 2023 to 2028.

The existing Street Trading Policy came into effect from 1 April 2019. The Street Trading Policy requires updating to reflect our priorities and outcomes for 2023 to 2028, in particular in relation to protecting people from harm, promoting health and managing the environment. In addition, ongoing improvements in licensing practices and procedures need to be embedded within the policy to further strengthen the application process and simplify this where possible, whilst maintaining the foundations for robust enforcement to continue to increase compliance with the Street Trading Policy

On the 22 June 2022 the Strategic Licensing Committee agreed to consult on the updated policy, to commence on 27 June 2022 and run for 8 weeks to midnight on the 21 August 2022.

The current Street Trading Policy has been amended and can be found at

Agenda for Strategic Licensing Committee on Wednesday, 22nd June, 2022, 10.00 am — Shropshire Council
