Street Trading and Pedlary in Great Britain - Final Report
This report has been produced by the Policy Research Group at St. Chad’s College, Durham, on behalf of Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and is based on a study carried out during June-September 2008. . It is about street trading and its permissions and focused on licensing, rather than on safety (CE marks), food safety, insurance and other concerns closer to trading standards. The report draws special attention to the question of the current practices in licensing and enforcement and whether these are appropriate and sufficient to effectively manage the issues of pedlary and illegal street trading. It is based on information supplied by local authorities, the police, street traders and pedlars, collected using a combination of interviews and focus groups, and a number of surveys carried out over the telephone, by email, by post and on the street.

Supplementary Business Rate - ATCM Response to DCLG Enquiry
In many parts of the country there is a need for investment in major infrastructure that would bring long term economic and social benefit. The success of BIDs in the UK has demonstrated that businesses will agree to pay an additional levy associated with their business rate to fund shared projects. The proposal in the Lyons report to introduce a Supplementary Business Rate therefore appears logical. However, it is our view that the proposals as made will destroy the basic concept of trust that is behind the success of BIDs to date and will almost certainly end BIDs in this country just as they are beginning to demonstrate real success.

Scottish Planning Policy 8
This draft Scottish Planning Policy ( SPP) sets out the Executive's policy for town centres and the key uses which contribute to their economic growth and enhancement. When finalised it will replace NPPG 8 Town Centres and Retailing, published in October 1998. While the underlying policy remains unaltered, this SPP clearly and concisely emphasises the Executive's support for town centres. The document acknowledges the importance of a broader range of land uses rather than a specific focus on retailing. The content of the draft SPP takes account of the findings of research into the operation of NPPG8

ATCM Response to SPP8 Consultation
The ATCM (Association of Town Centre Management) welcomes the proposed revision to NPPG8 as set out in the consultation draft. We are supportive of its content and its brevity, which we believe has not harmed its clarity. Perhaps not surprisingly, we fully support the premise that “Vibrant, thriving town centres should be the focus for communities” [Paragraph 3].
