Proposed changes to licensing conditions for second hand dealers

Closed 22 Apr 2015

Opened 25 Mar 2015

Overview

The Council has proposed certain changes to the licensing requirements for second hand dealers.

The proposed conditions cover all second hand dealers, including those dealing in clothing and textiles.

The proposed conditions aim to help to modernise and improve the Licensing Service.

Why We Are Consulting

On 17 November 2014 the Council’s Regulatory Committee agreed in principle the amended conditions proposed in the report entitled “Second Hand Dealer: Update of Standard Conditions”.

The Committee further instructed that, prior to any changes being finalised, the views of licence holders and other stakeholders should be obtained.

This consultation will run until 24 April 2015, and results will be presented to the Regulatory Committee in due course.

What Happens Next

Results of this consultation will be presented to the Regulatory Committee in due course. The report will be published on the Council website.
