Newtown Town Council

43 Broad Street Newtown Wales SY16 GB

Newtown Town Council has the following markets: A regular Tuesday Charter Market and an annual Food Festival

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 do not have a policy that specifically states the sale of real fur, we do however have a policy that states :

“The Council will not permit the sale of any illegal, dangerous, or inappropriate products. The following, non-exhaustive, list of products, or product groups, is prohibited from sale at Newtown Charter Market;

 Guns, Replica Guns, Ornamental Swords and Knives (Except Kitchen Knives & Cutlery), Laser pens, Live Animals, Fireworks, Counterfeit Goods, Illegally Copied Videos, CD’s, DVD’s, MP3 disks & Computer Games, Drugs, Drug Related Products or Items Promoting the Taking of Drugs (inc. Legal Highs), Inappropriate or Offensive Products as deemed by Market Management

The Council reserves the right to amend the above list of products or product groups at any time.”

We sought clarification from the council if this would mean they would prevent the sale of real fur and they stated:

This would be a political decision that the Economy and Environment Committee  would have to consider on a case by case basis.

The Council allows the sale of fur. They did not respond to our offer to send information on our Fur Free Markets scheme.

Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Richard Edwards,  Chair of Economy and Environment Committee , email: richard.edwards@newtown.org.uk
