What happens when we receive your application

  1. Your application will be automatically rejected if an application for the same site has been rejected before because people raised objections.
  2. A copy of your application will be sent to City Transportation, The Director of Public Health, West Midlands Police and, if relevant, the City Centre Manager’s Office. If any of these organisations object, your application will be rejected. We will send you a letter to let you know and tell you which organisation(s) objected.
  3. If no objections are raised, a public notice about your application will be put up near the site. This notice will not include your name and address. The notice will be up for 21 days to give people time to object to or comment on the application.
  4. After the notice has been posted, we’ll prepare a report which includes any comments or objections. The report will be reviewed at the next relevant and available Ward sub-committee or District committee meeting.
  5. If the Ward sub-committee or District committee do not object to your application, it will be passed to the Head of Service (Markets), who will make the final decision whether to grant or deny Street Trading Consent.

We’ll send you a letter to let you know the result of your application.
