A PLAN to ban street trading in parts of town centre streets will be discussed at a meeting tonight.

Swindon Council’s Licensing Committee will meet at the Civic Offices, in Euclid Street, from 6pm to discuss a proposal to designate part or all of six town centre streets as prohibited areas.

If the plan is approved street traders will be banned from Canal Walk, The Parade, Regent Street, Regent Circus, Edgeware Road and part of Bridge Street from November.

The committee will consider the proposal before deciding whether to put it before full council on Thursday, July 16. Several street traders have raised objections.
