Consultation on proposed Market Policy
The Council recognises the important contribution that street markets can make to the local economy and the character of an area.
The promotion of markets is an important inclusion in the town centre regeneration projects for Epping, Loughton, Ongar, Waltham Abbey, Buckhurst Hill and the district as a whole.
The purpose of the market policy is to create a market trading environment that compliments the surrounding area and retail offer, is sensitive to the needs of all users of or town centres and provides a diversity of choice for consumers. It seeks to encourage and stimulate investment from local traders and to create a quality and sustainable offer to our residents and visitors.
In doing so the policy aims to protect and, where possible, enhance the amenity and character of the District and local communities within it, to provide opportunity for local traders and businesses and to provide market operators with clarity and guidance.
We welcome your views on the proposed policy and anyone wishing to comment on this policy may do so in writing.
