Please refer to the following council guidelines:
 

General: 

 

Businesses and individuals seeking to set up shop on Council-owned property in a mobile unit (such as a converted caravan or trailer) are required to apply for and pay for a license. You can get a license for a whole year or for a partial year (only full months), with a one-month minimum and prorated expenses. In order to ensure that the mobile unit complies with all food hygiene regulations, the Environmental Health Officer must inspect it before issuing a license for food preparation and sale. A registered and guaranteed mobile unit is required in every instance.

 

Market Only: 

 

The first step for any individual or company looking to set up shop at a market in a mobile unit (such as a converted caravan or trailer) is to apply for and pay the one-time annual charge for a license from the Council. The license allows the holder to operate from any market within the district, subject to the consent of the Market organizer, but this cost cannot be pro-rated. In order to ensure that the mobile unit complies with all food hygiene regulations, the Environmental Health Officer must inspect it before issuing a license for food preparation and sale. A mobile unit’s registration and warranty are mandatory requirements at all times.

 

 

A mobile trading license is required for any firm that provides commercial services or operates a mobile shop and intends to conduct business in a public area.
You can apply for a mobile trading license online or schedule a meeting with your local council.
