Shropshire Council has the following markets: Market Drayton street and indoor Market,
Shrewsbury Market – responsible for the permanent stalls located around the perimeter of the market floor and gallery
Ellesmere Market Hall – leased out to ‘All together Ellesmere’
LSD Promotions are contracted to run the Market Drayton market. They have a strict No Fur policy and are members of our Fur Free Markets Scheme.
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 on this.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider but stated:
Yes, but this does not imply we will incorporate this wording into any of our agreements
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Steve Charmley, Portfolio holder for Corporate Support, email: email@example.com
