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
