If you sell or offer for sale any article in the street you may need a licence.
All streets in the Newport city boundary are ‘consent streets’ and anyone who wants to sell items from a trailer or stall in a street must first obtain a street trading consent.
Street traders selling hot food after 11pm will also need a licence under the Licensing Act 2003.
You do not need a street trading consent if you are:
trading as a pedlar under licence issued by a police authority
a market trader operating at a licensed market venue
a news vendor selling only newspapers and periodicals
