Apply for a concession

A concession is a licence to trade in a public space that we own (not including street trading). It usually covers catering opportunities in parks, gardens and coastal spaces. A licence is normally granted for one year.

2019 applications closed

We're no longer accepting applications for 2019. 

A final decision on all applications we have received will be made in March. If the concession is food related, our Environmental Health team may do a site inspection.

If the concession is awarded to you, there is an admin fee of £150 to pay when you sign the licence, which will start in April 2019. You are also responsible for any extra costs throughout the licence, such as utilities and waste disposal. 

Express interest in a new concession 

If you have an idea for a new concession stand on public space owned by us, you can submit a concession stand expression of interest.
