Mobile food vehicles

Some town centre street have been designated as "consent to trade" streets. This means that we can permit people to trade on these streets upon payment of a fee and provided certain conditions are met . These include footway width, access/egress, competition with other town centre shops, etc.

The current consent to trade streets are:

  • Alfreton - Institute Lane
  • Belper - King Street
  • Ripley - Market Place Area and Oxford Street

Mobile food vendors may be able to trade as part of our Friday & Saturday markets at Ripley & Heanor. Interested vendors should contact Amber Markets on 0115 9135382.

The council's off-street car parking order does not permit AVBC car parks to be used by mobile traders (including food vendors).

You will also need to refer to paying business rates.
