Fancy a cuppa, ice cream or snack?

Monday, 25 April, 2022

Havant Borough Council has awarded a number of special trading licenses, allowing small local businesses to operate in the borough to help regenerate and add social value to key areas.

Visitors to the area can grab a variety of different food, drink or ice-creams whilst enjoying their day out on and around Hayling Island.

Three small local businesses are currently up and running at a range of sites, including Hayling seafront and the popular walking and cycling area of the Hayling Billy line.

The council has made a dedicated effort to create new opportunities for local businesses to operate concessions - a move which is more important than ever post Covid.

The seasonal concessions will only operate during the summer, however the council will explore the possibility of licence extensions, if there is a demand in popularity of operating through the winter season.

Each concession is responsible for their own health and safety, waste management and noise limitation procedures.

The council currently offer six-month licence at designated pitches across the borough.

Each can be applied for online. For more information visit our council-owned property webpage
