This council has advised us that they have no responsibility for trading stalls at markets or other events.

However, they also stated:

It is not a question of ‘allowing’ stall holders to sell these items. There is no legal basis to stop them.

Your offer of a recommended form of words is not accepted. There would be no possibility of the Licensing Committee imposing such conditions.
