Cornwall Council Consulting on Street Trading

Posted on: 17th August 2015

Cornwall Council consulting on Street Trading from now until 10 November 2015.

Cornwall Council – Street Trading Review

A review of street trading is necessary to achieve unification of the regulation of street trading in Cornwall and to comply with the European Union Services Directive (EUSD).  Some of the current designations are out of date and non-compliant with the EUSD.

It is envisaged many areas will benefit from a change in designation to allow event based trading and promote economic activities in some areas which are currently prohibited.

Cornwall Council’s Licensing Service has already undertaken an initial consultation exercise with Cornwall Councillors, Town and Parish Councils and internal Cornwall Council Services to consider proposals for a street trading review across Cornwall.  Full details of the internal consultation including the relevant Committee Reports and Minutes are available at this link:

Having taken into account the views from the internal consultation the Council are now undertaking a formal public consultation.

Cornwall Council would now like to hear the views of all those who are affected by issues relating to the regulation of street trading.

In order that your views can be taken into account as part of this review, a document has been prepared to provide information relating to street trading and to incorporate the consultation questions.

It would be appreciated if you would consider taking the time to respond to the specific questions in the form Consultation CC Street Trading Review and return by email to or by post to Licensing Service, Cornwall Council, Chy Trevail, Beacon Technology Park, Bodmin PL31 2FR
