Decision details


Decision Maker: Jobs and Economy Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved


The Committee considered the revised Town Centre Trading Policy for the use of all Council owned squares.


There was a discussion about the wording of item 3.1 which concerned market stalls and existing businesses.   There was a minor change to the wording, though it was noted that applications from market traders could not be turned down based on the presence of similar businesses in town centres.  The benefits of competition in town centres were noted. 


RESOLVED that the amendments to the Town Centre Trading policy and the revised policy be APPROVED and implemented with immediate effect.
