 ENTERTAINMENT LICENCE   


We licence and inspect entertainment places to make sure they maintain high standards of management and have suitable arrangements in place for managing fires and other safety risks.

We also make sure premises are suitable for their intended use and have appropriate levels of insurance, provide access to emergency services and have adequate sanitary and hygiene facilities. This also applies to outdoor entertainment.

STREET TRADING


If you're selling or offering a service in a street or public place, you must have a licence.

Types of licence

There are three types of street trading licence:

  • stationary licence to trade from a designated permanent pitch
  • licence to trade as a mobile trader
  • temporary licence for events

You don't need a licence to sell newspapers or magazines from a holder carried by the sell. Milk men, bread men, coal men and delivery men are also exempt.

Buskers don't need a licence, but if they want to sell items like CDs they must apply for one. 

Stationary licence to trade from a designated permanent pitch

We only grant licenses for areas which we've approved for stationary street trading.

If we want to designate new trading areas we will publish legal notices (for 28 days), explaining our proposals, in local newspapers to make sure the public and other organisations are consulted. 

Mobile trading licence

All mobile traders, including ice-cream vans and mobile shops, must have a mobile trading licence which allows them to work within specific areas. 

If you're applying for a mobile trading licence you must tell us the route that you propose to trade from in your application form. You must also give details of the days and times you intend to trade.

Temporary licence for events

Even if you only want to sell at a one-off event, you'll need a temporary licence.

PETROLEUM LICENCE


We licence and inspect petrol filling stations (and other places that store and dispense petrol) to make sure the design and operation of the premises meets safety controls.

There's potential for accidents at all sites where petrol is stored and dispensed. As petrol is very hazardous and flammable, it’s extremely important that these sites have properly designed and constructed facilities which are used and looked after correctly.

Irish and Ulster Scots Voicemail Service

The Council now provides an Irish and Ulster Scots voicemail service for any member of the public who wishes to ring using these languages. Simply ring the Council and ask to be put through to the service.  You will then hear a voicemail message in that language and be asked to leave your message.  We will then have your message translated and a response sent.
