Market 7 days a week???


Some of you may have received a letter from Lambeth Council detailing proposals for a market trading 7 days a week, from 8am until 11.30pm in Station Square on Railton Road.


The letter was very poorly worded and has caused understandable consternation and confusion in the community. There will be a meeting to discuss this and allay people’s concerns - details coming soon.


Planning permission has been sought from Lambeth to make the popular Sunday farmers’ market a permanent fixture. However, no application has been made, or will be made, for a 7 day a week market. There is no need or desire for this.


The planning permission currently being consulted on is to allow the following;

  • A weekly farmers’ market
  • The ability to organise ‘one off’ events

Update on Railton Road - a new market

New market in Railton Road?


There’s lots of scope to use the semi-pedestrianised stretch of Railton Road and one option is a regular market.


Markets provide a buzz and sense of community by creating an enjoyable place to linger, browse, stop for a drink and meet people. Of 300 local people interviewed last month, 91% want a market. They’re also a very good way to support local shops - the sheer numbers of people visiting can boost shop takings considerably.
