Markets Committee Risk Update

Report of the Director of Markets & Consumer Protection


The Committee considered a report of the Director of Markets & Consumer Protection outlining management procedures in place to meet the requirements of the Corporate Risk Management Framework.


It was also confirmed that the general public were not being refused admission to New Spitalfields Market but visitors were not permitted entry in large groups to maintain social distancing. 


Officers advised that the rating for MCP-SMO13 & MCP-SMO14 was green as mitigation measures had now been put in place.  Members remained concerned regarding ratings for MCP-SMO13 & MCP-SMO14 and Officers reiterated that as mitigation measures (netting) were in place, the level of risk had been reduced. However, Officers would consider whether the netting should be retained in the medium term, in consultation with City Surveyor and the outcome of the Markets building conditions surveys in the coming weeks would be reported to the Committee in due course.


Given the continuing concerns of Members that ratings were over-generous, Officers agreed to further review MCP-SMO13 & MCP-SMO14 risk ratings.




That the report be noted.
