Further views sought on trading

District bosses are consulting on their latest plans for new street trading rules, which would exclude Sidmouth from the proposed changes.

East Devon District Council (EDDC) is proposing to designate the whole of the district as a consent street, meaning street traders would have to apply to EDDC for a licence to trade. However, following its initial consultation, EDDC now plans to exclude Sidmouth, which would retain a general ban on street trading, except for during folk week. To respond, visit www.eastdevon.gov.uk/streettrading, or for a paper copy call 01395 517569. The closing date for responses is April 26.
