Street trading

Street trading

Elmbridge does not operate a street trading licensing scheme so you do not need to buy a licence to trade on the public highway. Neither the Police, Surrey County Council, or Elmbridge Borough Council can give any permission or issue a written permit to allow trading to take place on the public highway.

However there are some streets where trading is not allowed:

  • A245 (Byfleet Road) from the Painshill roundabout to the junction with Brooklands Road

  • A244 (Warren lane), Oxshott - all along its entire length

  • Copsem Lane, Esher - all along it's entire length

  • Claremont lane, Esher - all along it's entire length

  • A309 (Hampton Court Way) all along its entire length

  • A307 (Portsmouth Road, Esher) from the Scilly Isles to Fairmile Lane

These are all shown on the map of prohibited roads.

Trading on private land without permission is classed as trespassing and you may be liable to prosecution by the landowner.
