Limavady Borough Council has issued a warning to people intending to trade from street stalls or vehicles they must have a licence to do so.

Council issued the reminder after its Environmental Health Department received a number of enquiries from the public regarding street trading recently, in particular with regard to trading at the forthcoming parade in Limavady town on Saturday, 27 August 2011.

Applications for licences must be made to Council as soon as possible but not later than 19 August 2011.

“The Street Trading Act (NI) 2001 requires all traders who engage in street trading to hold a licence regardless of their method of trading. Therefore whether a trader operates from a stationary trading position, a mobile stall or vehicle, or as a temporary trader they will need to have a licence,” said a spokesperson.
