Street trading

Section 7: Trading activities, places and prohibited times

18.This section provides a definition of trading. An illustrative (but not exhaustive) list of activities which will be treated as trading is then set out in subsection (2). This section also allows the trading regulations to define what activities will be treated as trading; to designate areas within the event zones in which the trading offence set out in section 6 would not apply; to prescribe what alternative arrangements are to be offered to existing street traders, as defined in subsection (5); and to define “prohibited times” when the trading offence will apply (which will fall within the Championship period as defined in section 1).
