A:   Solihull MBC complies with the law when determining the items traders are allowed to sell when on Council land.  It is currently not illegal for these items to be sold so the sale of these goods would be permitted.

Solihull MBC would not object to receiving copies of any information with regard to policy documents and stallholder agreements.  However, these would be received without prejudice.

There has been no further contact from the Council since this information was sent 31/01/18
