Brief Description of Decision:

 

 

To agree to the implementation of the Improvement Plan for the markets, including:

·          Running additional markets in the Outdoor Covered Market (OCM)

·          Revising charges for some existing markets in the OCM

·          Charging for use of the toilets in the Centenary Market Hall, although disabled toilets will remain free to use.

 

Reasons for the Decision:

 

 

The Markets currently has a major budget pressure. The improvement plan will seek to create additional income to partially alleviate this pressure.

Charging for the toilets will tackle anti-social behaviour, which is a recurring problem at the current time.

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

 

Do nothing – the Markets will remain as they are, no additional income will be regenerated and some Markets will continue to lose stalls; to the point where it is no longer viable to run them.

 

The toilets will continue to be a source of ASB and complaints from customers and traders

 

Conflicts of interest declared by any Executive Member consulted by the decision maker which relates to the decision:

None

 

Dispensations Granted:
