Street trading licence

Apply for a street trading licence

There are two types of licence:

  • One for trading using stalls, tables, units, vans and so on
  • One for leafleting and human advertising (people wearing billboards).

If you wish to trade at one of Newham's street markets you will need to apply for a Newham Street market trading licence.  Please contact the Markets team to do this

If you want to trade for up to six months you can apply for temporary licence. If you get a licence for six months, and you want to trade past that period, you will have to apply for another temporary licence before the original licence runs out.
