Which streets can I apply to trade on?

From 6 December 2020 streets within Birmingham are designated as either consent streets, where trading is permitted, or as prohibited streets or the 51 parks and open spaces that have not been given a designation (see Street Trading Policy and appendices 1, 2, 3 and 4). Street trading will not be permitted on prohibited streets or within the 51 parks and open spaces.

The council doesn’t have a list of potential street trading sites. It’s up to you to identify the site you want to apply to trade on.

When you apply for consent, make sure you are a specific as possible about where you wish to trade. If you are given street trading consent, it will be for an exact location.

Please refer to the Street Trading Policy to advise yourself of the matters we take into consideration when assessing the suitability of a proposed consent including location.

We don’t give consent in areas that have parking restrictions of any sort, including official local authority car parks.
