Street Trading

We have designated specific streets within the county as either Licensed streets where street trading requires a permit from us or Prohibited streets in which street trading is not permitted. A detailed list of both types of streets is given in the application pack below.

How to apply

Information on how to apply for street trading permits is given below alongside the relevant guidance, application form and fee details. Applicants are advised to read the relevant guidance and policy documents and contact the licensing section to discuss their proposals prior to completing an application.

Your completed application together with any necessary supporting documentation and the appropriate application fee should be submitted to the Licensing Section at the address given below. All cheques should be made payable to Carmarthenshire County Council.

In order to allow sufficient time to process your application which includes consultation with various departments, with regards Food Safety, Trading Standards, Highways (Safety Audits) and Market Managers, we will require a minimum of 28 days notice for all applications. In some instances, i.e. lay-by applications, processing such applications can take longer due to consultations with outside Highway Agencies.

Each application must be submitted with the location you wish to trade i.e. grid reference, address, road name and number, lay-by name (if applicable) and any supporting photographs.

The application pack also sets out the fees payable.


Complaints relating to street trading should be directed to the Licensing section at the address given below.
