The annual NABMA Local Council’s Seminar will be held at Ludlow Town Council, SY8 1DG on 13th June.
This seminar is free and will include a buffet lunch.The event is aimed at local councils who currently operate markets, or who are aspiring to operate a local market, particularly acknowledging the opportunities presented by the Localism Act and the General Power of Competence. Markets are also currently at the forefront of Government interest, particularly acknowledging the Mary Portas report on the future of the High Street and the Government response. NABMA are delighted that as a result of the Portas report there is to be a National Market Day and this can be held at any time during the period 23rd June – 8th July.
The event programme is structured to look at two extremely successful local council markets namely Shrewsbury and Ludlow that have achieved significant success in the KPR Midlink Market of the Year competition. A visit to Ludlow market is part of the event programme. NABMA will also have a panel session to give delegates the opportunity to question market experts on policy, regulation and operational issues. A NALC Vice-Chairman, Cllr. Ken Browse, will also deliver some remarks at the event.
This is the fifth year that the event has been held and it has always proven to be extremely well subscribed. Acknowledging the current economic climate, the opportunities arising within the Localism agenda and the Government interest in the high street and markets, then it is hoped that this free event will be of interest to your Council.
