A:  This does not currently form part of the Market Regulations and we have not received requests to sell real fur, but there may be occasions, e.g. vintage/antique stalls, when real fur may form part of a range of clothing.  Please forward a copy of a form of words that you suggest for consideration for inclusion in the Market Regulations.

London Borough of Brent Council has the following markets: This authority currently does not manage any markets. It does allow use of its land for fairs and festivals. In addition, we regularly licence food and trading stalls on permanent or occasional basis. There are traders during Wembley event days as well. These are not outsourced or managed by another body. Impossible to list all the traders we licence. However, whatever the event the local authority does not allow sale of animal fur or any performing animal acts.

The Council currently has 3 markets.

The markets are: High Street, Sutton; The Market Wrythe Lane – Rosehill; Woodmansterne Lane

Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.

A:    We do not have a banned commodities list but each applicant is be required to give us details of what they propose to sell and we have the ability to ban items should the council deem it necessary. I can confirm no market trader currently sells real fur and we would not allow a trader to do this.

The Council does not prohibit the sale of real fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.

A: It is not something we have a specific category for although all Eastbourne Borough Council events trade documents have a clause banning any items deemed inappropriate by Eastbourne Borough Council.

Gosport Borough Council has the following markets: Gosport Market (Tuesday and Saturday)

Here is the Council’s response to our Freedom of Information request:

Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.

A: We would ask stall holders to withdraw products if brought to our notice

Although the council agreed to consider our Fur Free Markets scheme, they have since informed us:

it has been decided that for the time being our informal policy of not allowing fur is sufficient.

This is disappointing.  No market can ever be fur free if it has a policy of being reactive rather than proactive.

Please urge the Council to join the official Fur Free Markets scheme by contacting Councillor Graham Burgess, Chair of Community Board, email: graham.burgess@gosport.gov.uk

This council has advised us that they have no responsibility for trading stalls at markets or other events.
