Scottish Borders Council

Scottish Borders Council has the following markets: Hawick Market and Peebles Market.

Scottish Borders Council do not actually run any Markets but we do own and leases two market sites to Market Operators who run the Markets themselves.

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:  Nothing specific in the Lease Terms. The tenants are required to obtain a Market Operators Licence as part of the lease.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have refused to even consider our Fur Free Policy.

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 Aitchison, Neighbourhoods and Locality Services Executive Member, email: saitchison@scotborders.gov.uk
