Why do you need a permit in Leland to have a yard sale?

Ken Little

Typically, a permit is not needed for a yard sale, town Planning Director Robert Waring said.

“If the sale is being held at your home you would not need a permit, although there are limitations on the length of the sale,” he said.

Yard sales held in commercial areas like parking lots or common areas do require a permit.

There is no fee for the permit.

“We ask that the group requesting the permit provide contact information and acknowledge the limitations on sales and signage,” Waring said.

According to the yard sale application permit issued by town Development Services, “Yard sales conducted at commercial establishments shall only be conducted by nonprofit organizations for nonprofit causes.”

Yard sales conducted at commercial establishments “shall be limited to no longer than two consecutive days” and no more than one yard sale, of up to two consecutive days, “shall be conducted in each 30-day calendar period.”

Yard sales “shall be conducted so as not to impede or interfere with the flow of traffic on any adjacent or surrounding street or right-of-way” and can only be conducted between of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The application for the permit must be submitted to the town manager’s office at least 24 hours before the start of the sale, and no later than the close of business on the preceding Thursday for sales to be held on Saturday or Sunday.
