Street trading means selling, exposing or offering for sale any articles and street includes all parts of the highway (i.e. a road), including verges, lay-bys, bus stops and road cut-offs.
We have designated the following roads designated as prohibited streets:

- A169 Malton to Whitby
- A166 York to Bridlington

These are the principal roads that run through the District. Certain other roads and streets in Ryedale have been designated as prohibited streets. A definitive list is available by contacting Health and Environment on 01653 600666.
