STREET TRADING -SURREY STREET CROYDON TRADING FEES
Notice under Section 32 London Local Authorities Act, 1990, as amended
Street trading fees may be calculated so that the estimated income for the year balances the Council's estimated costs for enforcement, administration, cleansing and refuse services, as applicable to street trading. The charges which may be made are governed by Part 3 of the London Local Authorities Act 1990, s.32. This enables the Council to recover its reasonable costs.
Currently, the weekly charge for a permanent single trading pitch (3 metres by 3 metres) on Surrey Street, Croydon is £75.10 for six days a week, Monday to Saturday. This fee has been the same since 2006, when the pitch fees were last reviewed and when pitches measured 2.75 metres by 2.14 metres. However, following a review, we are proposing to increase the weekly fee in line with a rise in costs as it has been calculated that the current fees do not cover the Council's reasonable administrative, enforcement, cleansing and refuse services costs that are incurred in respect of Surrey Street.
We are proposing that the rate for a permanent single pitch on Surrey Street is increased to £95 a week. This increase is still less than if the Retail Price Index (inflation) had been applied each year since the fees were last set in 2006. If that were the case, the current fee would be £114 per week.
In addition to permanent trading pitches, there are a number of casual or temporary traders, for example ready to eat food vendors, that operate on temporary licenses and who do not trade every day. The current charge for a temporary license is £10 per day for the first four weeks, then £15 per day thereafter. In addition, temporary licenses are available to permanent and casual traders at £15 per day should they wish to trade in Surrey Street on a Sunday. We are proposing to keep temporary licenses at the current charge of £10 per day for the first four weeks and thereafter, increase the daily charge to £20 per day, including Sunday.
A statement showing the costs and how the proposed fees have been computed is attached at Appendix A. We propose to introduce these new charges from 1 August 2021. Any representations relating to the above must be made in writing to the Council and must be submitted by 5pm on 1" July 2021. Representations may be sent to
