As a result of the consultation the changes to the designations of streets were approved by the public safety and protection committee on 14 July 2015. The new designations came into force on 1 September 2015. The report and minutes can be found on the councils website at



The Council's Street Trading Policy was revised in March 2009 and the Council's Public Safety and Protection Committee have agreed that changes to the permitted streets may be consulted on. 


The Council are considering changing the designation of some streets to consent streets which would allow street trading to take place on them.  A full list of streets can be seen in the 'Consultation document' (link below)
