Paying For A Private Pitch Council Are Also Taking Applications For The Same Place

I got in touch with my local council a few months ago regarding a pitch which is advertised as available on the council website, they informed me it has 70 applications for the licence on this pitch.This pitch has been advertised as available now for well over 18 months but has yet to be awarded to anyone .
On the same spot where the council have advertised this licence I have made an arrangement with a land owner to rent me a pitch for a trailer, this will be my first trailer which my girlfriend and myself will work together.
My question is will the council still be able to issue a roadside trading license on this pitch once I start trading the private land which is only about 10 feet from where the council plan to issue the license for.
As I will be the first person to trade on this stretch of road i think it would be unfair as i will be paying weekly rent to trade on the pitch.
Thanks for reading
