Since the boroughwide regulation of Street Trading in 2014, a further 246 highway has become adopted.
As part of our responsibility for administering and enforcing the Council’s Street Trading arrangements; Licensing are consulting on a proposal to designate these highways as consent streets as part of an overall update. Otherwise, any Street Trading that occurs on these streets would be unregulated.
Further to the consultation, Drew Court in Bletchley (off from Watling Street) is proposed to be redesignated from Prohibited to Consent. Fen Street, Brooklands and Mortimer Park, Stony Stratford are proposed to be added to the schedule of prohibited streets.
Street traders are typically static fast-food trailers and itinerant mobiles such as ice cream vans. Licensing has a system of either consent or prohibited streets for Street Trading, and only adopted highway can be designated as either.
Consent street means a consent permit is required to trade on or within 60 metres from that street. Prohibited street means trading is not permitted on or within 60 metres from that street.
Please see the attached list of adopted highways to be designated as consent streets. The consultation period ends on the 1 November 2023, with an intention to take any responses to Regulatory Committee in February for decision.
