Car boot sale

EUGOSouth Tyneside Council is a marketing authority and therefore protects its market rights to stop anyone wishing to hold a rival market within the boundary of six and two third miles of South Shields market. 

A car boot sale is deemed a rival market and therefore is unlikely to be permitted. 

Please contact the licensing team on 0191 424 7695 or by emailing if you are thinking about holding a car boot sale for a charitable purpose.  

The council's legal officer will be able to help you with your enquiry.
