South Lakeland District Council

South Lakeland District Council has the following markets: indoor and outdoor Market in Kendal

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:  Although we have no specific written policy on this subject, we wouldn’t knowingly allow anyone to retail animal fur on the market. The majority of our outdoor market traders are food retailers, the few trade stalls that retail any clothing items operate their own self-imposed ban on the sale of fur and animal products. No one has retailed fur on our markets for many years.

However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.

At their request we have sent them our recommended policy to consider.

Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Councillor Graham Vincent , Economy and Assets Portfolio Holder, g.vincent@southlakeland.gov.uk
