Dunbar Harbour Trust is seeking applications for food outlets to be situated at the harbour.

The pitches would be approximately 16ft by 8ft and would need to be portable as the season would be 1st April to 31st October.

Opening times would be flexible but closing time, for the sale of foodstuffs, will be not later than 2100hrs. Units should be clean and attractive and if possible individual. We would look positively on an applicant supplying local, seasonal food with a seafood theme by preference. Rental would be payable monthly in advance. Power and water can be supplied but the power would be charged separately.

Terms and Conditions of food pitch lease.

  • The vendor would fully comply with all the necessary legislation as laid down by Environmental Health.
  • Food Hygiene certificates must be displayed in the unit.
  • Vendors must ensure they have relevant insurance in place covering both the unit and employees.
  • Firefighting equipment must be in place as specified by legislation covering mobile units.
  • First Aid and accident policy must be in place and available for inspection.
  • To prevent gulls or other vermin lidded bins must be supplied adjacent to the unit as well as food waste being disposed of daily.
  • In the event of the unit being abandoned, burnt out or neglected we reserve the right to remove it from the harbour area and charge the owner for so doing.
  • Each unit may have tables and chairs near their pitch but restricted to one or two tables per pitch.
  • One months’ notice to terminate this agreement will be required from either party.
  • Should the terms and conditions be breached then the Dunbar Harbour Trust will terminate the agreement immediately and require the vendor to clear all their equipment from the harbour within 24 hours. Notice to terminate, from either party, will be in writing.
  • Vendors are required to obey the Harbour Masters instructions at all times to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the harbour.

A completed application form with your bid for a pitch at the harbour needs to be sent to Dunbar Harbour Trust, McArthurs Store, Victoria Street, Dunbar EH42 1HN by 31 October for next year’s season.
