The statement of Street Trading Policy sets out the council’s approach to street licensing and its standards for those engaged in street trading either from an isolated pitch or within one of Westminster’s street markets.
The policy was implemented in late 2013 and covers 11 areas:
ST1 Stall Design
ST2 Barriers and Advertisements
ST3 Filling Vacancies
ST4 Re-letting of unused pitches
ST5 Designation & De-designation
ST6 Temporary relocation
ST7 Hours of trading
ST8 Guidelines for goods on sale
ST9 Fees & Waivers
ST10 Attendance and the use of licensed pitches
ST11 Electricity and other services
The policy implementation meant some change for traders who have been on our markets and isolated pitches for many years. The changes were communicated to all traders through various letters.
