Street Trading (Outside London)

Street trading legislation regulates the sale or offering for sale of anything or service (London) in a street.  Street trading is different from peddling in a number of ways but primarily a pedlar is an itinerant seller where as a street trader sells goods from a pitch.  Currently the Police is responsible for the licensing of pedlars whereas local authorities are responsible for the regulation of street trading.
