Drastic anti-terrorism measures are to be put in place in Stratford this autumn, in a move which will have big implications for the Sunday Market and traders in the town.
The changes are designed to protect people from the kind of hostile vehicle attacks, which have led to large casualties in recent years.
New bollards will be installed on the paved area at Waterside in September, while a one-way traffic system on Sheep Street and Chapel Lane will be put in place.
However, the bollards will seriously impact on the Waterside Sunday Market, and despite consultations with the operator LSD Promotions, no solution has been found.
As a result the district council are planning to move the Sunday Market to Bridge Street for a three-month trial period.
Linda McGillicuddy, director at market operator, LSD Promotions, said: “LSD Promotions has been proud to deliver the highly successful Upmarket along Waterside, which is thronged with visitors every Sunday, and whilst we were very happy to continue in this effective location, we are ever mindful that an international town like Stratford-upon-Avon, is a go to destination for millions of visitors each year and must take every precaution to guard against terrorism, installing whatever measures are necessary to keep one of the UK’s most popular and vibrant towns as safe as humanly possible.
“The measures that are being put in place along Waterside mean that it can no longer accommodate the Upmarket and after discussions with the District Council, we all agreed that in keeping with the contract, the only alternative location would be to move the market to Bridge Street, which we will be doing for a trial period, starting in October.
