Street Trading

Street trading policy

Oadby and Wigston Borough Council has adopted powers under the Local Government (Misecellanous Provisions) Act 1982 to control street trading within the Borough. Street trading is classed as the sale of any article from any street, road, highway or footpath to which the public have access too.

The Council's policy requires a range of traders to hold licensing consents from ice cream vans, burger vans and people selling flowers in lay-by's to cars left for sale on the public highway.

The Council's policy can be read here:

Anyone intending to carry out activities from the street is responsible for ensuring that they are doing so legally and should consult the above policy.

The application form can be dowloaded below. Current fees are displayed on the form.
