Trading Concession Opportunities


Pembrokeshire is an area of outstanding beauty that includes award winning beaches, castles, ancient sites and coastal national park. This stunning backdrop offers exciting opportunities for entrepreneurs and local businesses to develop trading opportunities.

We offer a number of trading concession opportunities located across the County and welcome applications for these. We also welcome expressions of interest in developing new concession opportunities.

Concessions offered

Trading concessions are a type of contract between contracting authorities/entities and suppliers.

Examples of current trading concessions are:

  • an ice-cream concession at a beach site: selling ice-creams from a van/unit
  • a cafe concession: a café being run from a Council building such as a library or leisure centre

Where are concession opportunities advertised?

Concession opportunities are advertised on Sell2Wales (opens in a new tab) 

This website was set up by the Welsh Government and aims to help businesses find contracts that are offered by the public sector across Wales.

A 'search for contracts' page provides a simple way for your business to find opportunities to provide goods, works or services to the public sector. You can search using key words, by location, or by notices (current opportunities, future opportunities or contract results). You could search, for example, using just the key word 'Concession'. Alternatively, you could search by the key word 'Concession' and select the location you wish to search in such as 'South West Wales' to see what types of concession opportunities there are in that location.

If you are interested in a particular concession contract that is advertised, you will then need to submit the information requested by the deadline.

When are concession opportunities advertised?

This will depend on the type of concession opportunity. Some concession contracts are seasonal and run during the busier periods of the year, some annual and some may be awarded for a number of years. Typically, contracts are advertised at least a month before they are due to commence. There is a facility on Sell2Wales (opens in a new tab) to be notified of new tendering opportunities that match the business categories that you are interested in.
