The government has indicated that outdoor markets could reopen again from Monday 1 June, providing they are able to meet the relevant guidelines intended to protect shoppers and staff.
Our officers have been planning for the reopening of markets for some time, exploring options to do so in a safe way. There are significant challenges involved and it is clear that in the short term at least, our markets will look and feel quite different from what we are used to.
Traders are being asked to look at their operating models and to put plans in place that would allow them to operate in a safe and socially distanced way. Market officers are providing advice and support. Traders who cannot demonstrate that they have proper plans in place will not be allowed to reopen.
