A concession is a licence to trade in an open public space that is owned by us. It often refers to individual catering sites in coastal areas, parks and gardens. Concessions do not cover licences to trade on the public highway or street trading.
The 2017 annual concession round is now closed. The 2018 concession tender cycle will be advertised in January 2018.
A list of available concession sites for 2018 will be published from January 2018.
Please note: If you are interested in running a concession from a council owned site which is not already taken, you can submit an expression of interest form.
Please note applications take time to process and approval is not guaranteed.
