Street trading

The sale of goods from streets within the borough of Redcar & Cleveland requires a prior consent to do so.

A street trading consent is required to sell goods on any land where the public has access without payment.

You will need to identify a suitable location and ask the owner of the land for permission to use their land for street trading purposes.

We advise against submitting an application until you have evidence of the landowner giving you permission (applications will normally be refused if landowner permission is not included).

To request permission to use Council land, please contact:

In addition to the street trading consent fee (see below), there may also be additional charges to use Council land.

Council permission will not normally be given for applications on Marine Parade and the Lower Promenade in Saltburn as well as the promenade in Redcar.

How much will ​​it cost to apply?

Fees are payable after the consent has been granted.

  • Standard consent (12 Months) - £250
  • Redcar Pedestrianised Area (12 Months) - £1,775
  • Single Day Event - £67

How do I apply?

Along with a completed application form, applicants must:

  • Provide evidence to show that you have permission from the landowner to trade in the location specified;
  • Provide a plan of the proposed area you wish to trade from;
  • Provide photographs of the vehicle, stall, barrow or similar that you wish to trade from
