All applications will be considered individually, in accordance with the following criteria:

  • no application will be considered if the area stated is in a residential location where trading would not normally take place
  • a consent will not be given for a location where it is not safe for customers to stand e.g. on the highway
  • a consent will not be granted if it is in direct competition with other local traders e.g. shops/cafes etc. providing similar services
  • we will determine times that trading will take place depending on the location
  • risk assessments will be carried out in accordance with guidance from Lincolnshire County Council Highways
  • officers will determine the type of goods and units that may be used according to the area requested.  For example, anybody wishing to trade in a conservation area does so only from traditional style barrows/vehicles, selling traditional ware, crafts, foods, etc.
