Me and my husband are thinking about buying a food trailer, I'm interested in knowing how much it will cost to get it set up minus the trailer and stock. So what I am really asking how much approximately is it for things like: street trading consent, has checks, pat test, insurance, checks for trailer, food hygiene course and so on. Any help welcome..
Do you need a street training consent to trade at car boots and in business car parks??

Hi, some links that might help you:

www.thebusinessbarn.co.uk/image/catalog/BOP%20PDFs/bop016%20Catering%20Service.pdf has information about legislation, costs, and lots more

and

www.ncass.org.uk/mobile-catering-home/content/starting-up/how-much-does-it-cost-to-start-

The second link is part of a national caterers' organisation who also produce a really useful print guide to setting up as a caterer; there is also masses of information available free on their website. Good luck - I'm currently investigating the possibilities for a family member, and it seems that every authority is slightly different and you need to apply for separate licences in most cases...
