[QUOTE=christinemunro]On Saturday 2nd March our Farmers Market will be in St Peters Church car park from 10am to 2pm. Tony Martin from the Church will be organising tea and refreshments from the hall cafe while customers can look around the market and make their purchases. We will have a good selection of artisan producers and craftspeople who will be showcasing their produce.
Future markets will be held on the 1st Saturday of each month.

Who has given permission for such a market (or any future markets). Has it been approved by the council. I believe that the following will need to be carried out first by a street enforcement officer before any such market can take place.

The general site layout will be considered together with the surface and land drainage arrangements. Toilet facilities for stallholders, their helpers and the public will be inspected. Both on and off site parking arrangements will be discussed together with emergency evacuation procedures, general fire, noise prevention and safety measures. Other Officers may be brought on site including those from the Police, Fire Service, Trading Standards and the Environmental Health Service. Officers will visit the site when the market is running and some of these visits will be unannounced inspections.

Also I don't see a church car park as a suitable venue for such trading, And where will any visitor park, hopefully not on the already busy side roads. Give a thought for an already busy area.
