Views wanted on East Devon street trading rules

District bosses are consulting on their latest plans for new street trading rules.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) is proposing to designate the whole of the district as a consent street, meaning street traders would have to apply to the council for a licence to trade.

However, following its initial consultation, EDDC now plans to exclude Sidmouth.

To take part in the consultation, visit www.eastdevon.gov.uk/streettrading, or to obtain a paper copy call 01395 517569. The closing date for responses is April 26.

Councillor Philip Skinner, East Devon District Council’s portfolio holder for economy, said: “I would like to thank everyone that gave us their views in the initial consultation, and would encourage them to have their say again. As shown, we did listen and make changes because of what people told us in the previous street trading consultation.

“There would be a wide variety of factors taken into account when deciding whether street traders/street markets are given permission to trade, the list of factors we’ll take into account is one of the things we want people’s views on in this consultation.

“This list includes consideration of what nearby permanent businesses were concerned about in the previous consultation, including taking into account what the street traders want to sell, to avoid them selling the same things as nearby permanent businesses.”
