Oct 25, 2012 Council News Comments Off on InSwindon told to move market
TOWN centre management firm InSwindon will have to move its ‘buzzing’, new street market in Havelock Square – because Swindon Council has banned street trading in that area.
InSwindon set up the weekly Thursday market last month, apparently in a bid to increase footfall for existing businesses, who fund the firm through a levy on business rates.
The council’s planning committee was told last night that the organisation had gained planning permission, but licensing officers were not approached and the market was technically illegal, because Havelock Street was a prohibited area for street trading.
A WEEKLY market in Havelock Square, scheduled to take place today has been cancelled after Swindon Council voted to enforce its existing ban on street trading in the area.
