Under Section 37 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982, any person intending to hold a temporary market, and any occupier of land who intends to permit the land to be used as the site of a temporary market, has to give the local authority not less than one month's notice of the proposed sale.
Notification of proposed dates should be emailed to email@example.com with details of the location of the land where the car boot is to be held. If it is a new car boot location, please provide a plan indicating the exact location of the site.
No such notice is required, however, if the proceeds are to be applied solely or principally for charitable, social, sporting or political purposes. Proof of this may be requested. Failure to provide the required notice can result in a fine of up to £1,000.
On receipt of the notice, we will consult other agencies where necessary and let the organiser know if there is any objection.
The council may instruct that formal planning permission is required.
If a car boot sale date has been cancelled, please notify the council within one week of the cancelled date to have this removed from the site allowance.
