1. Check if you need a mobile trading licence

​If you have a mobile shop or commercial services business and want to trade in a public space, you will need a mobile trading licence.

See What is a public place?

What a mobile trading licence allows you to do

A mobile trading licence allows you to trade from the approved location you apply for. You can have up to five locations on one licence.

A mobile trading licence does not:

  • give you a lease or designated use of the land
  • grant you a permanent site on public land
  • allow you to breach parking restrictions or road rules.
