Answer for Street Markets

Answer for Street Markets

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The challenges facing London's street markets would appear to be a function of the particular local circumstances of each market. Whilst this is largely a matter for the local authorities concerned, the GLA group will be undertaking a London Town Centres Health Check and a strategic assessment of consumer demand which will help to set the pan-London framework. Deregulation does not at this stage seem to be relevant to the future of London street markets but these two pieces of research will inform any strategic policy and guidance.
