A new street trading policy has been approved by South Cambridgeshire District Council to ensure local businesses are supported whilst providing residents with a varied choice of goods and services
The Council, in relation to its responsibility for street trading, has designated that all streets in the District will now come under its remit, with the exception of the A11 and A14 and any area of land which is in direct ownership and control of the County, District or Parish Councils.
All designated streets will be subject to the new regulations which aim to create an environment which complements premises-based trading, is sensitive to the needs of residents, provides diversity and consumer choice, and enhances the character, ambience, and safety of local environments.
The new policy was approved at a meeting of the Council’s Licensing Committee at South Cambs Hall on Wednesday 23 February) and will take effect from March 1, 2022. It will run for the next three years and will be kept under review.
