Joint report of the Director of the Built Environment and the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection.
The Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment and Director of Markets and Consumer Protection on the project aiming to enhance Petticoat Lane Market and the central section of Middlesex Street between Sandys Row and St Botolph Street. The report outlined the project's aim to celebrate the character and history of the area whilst improving the visitor experience.
A Member asked that consideration be given to the types of stalls within the market, noting that stalls selling cooked food close to vendors selling perfumes could affect trade. A Member also noted the importance of ensuring that those selling cooked food did not dispose of their waste and oil via the drains. The Director of Markets and Consumer Protection confirmed that both points raised would be monitored and that it was illegal to dispose of food in this manner.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
