Statement regarding High Court’s ruling on street trading policy
The statement below is the council’s response to a High Court ruling on a judicial review of its street trading policy, which was handed down earlier today (7 May 2021):
We are pleased that the High Court has dismissed this judicial review in its entirety and has not given leave to appeal.
This judgement confirms that our plans were developed in the correct way – this street trading policy is needed to ensure that we have the best possible trading environment for stallholders and customers alike across Birmingham.
We hope this new policy continues to benefit consumers and businesses alike, opening up the opportunities available for street traders across the city.
