Trader’s permits

The City’s Local Government and Public Property Local Law 2014 requires vendors selling goods and services in a public place, to hold a Trader’s Permit.

When assessing an application for a Trader’s Permit, consideration is given to parking, public safety, traffic flow, amenity of the location and the consistency of the trading activity with the existing land use.

For trading activities that include the sale of food, the registration of a food business must also be considered.

Coastal locations

Many vendors would prefer a stationary location at one of the City’s beachside car parks. Coastal locations that are considered suitable for trading to occur are displayed in the following table. The table identifies the current usage for each approved coastal location and the restrictions associated with each site.
