The Legal Department

Car Boot Sales

These events are not licensed as such.  There is a requirement that the Council is informed that they are to take place.  Not less than one months' notice should be provided of any intended car boot sales to Diane Rice, Legal Services Manager.  This notice should include: -

  • the full name and address of the person intending to hold the market;
  • the day or days on which it is proposed that the market shall be held and its proposed opening and closing times;
  • the site on which it is proposed that it shall be held;
  • the full name and address of the occupier of that site, if he is not the person intending to hold the market.

The notice requirements may not apply if the proceeds of sale are to be applied solely or principally for charitable, social, sporting or political purposes.  If in doubt, please contact the Council's legal department.
