There are a few exempt goods, most notably newspapers. This legislation does not deal with Pedlars Certificates, street entertainers or street collections.

Where we have no available sites for allocation, new applications are added to our waiting list and applicants informed accordingly.

Fees vary. A list of fees is available to download:
