New rules for street traders

SOUTH Kesteven District Council has introduced a new policy for street traders in the district.

South Kesteven has been designated as an area where a street trading licence is required.

The new policy document has been drawn up to standardise rules across the district.

Cabinet member Paul Carpenter said: “Street traders can add to the character of an area, so it is important that we have a policy which allows legitimate traders to continue to run their businesses.”
