Arun District Council has the following markets:
Littlehampton General Market, Littlehampton Artisan Market, Bognor Regis Street Market.
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?
The issues to which you refer thankfully are not problems that we have experienced within this District. We however do recognise that this may have caused a problem in other areas and that we may at some point find the sale of real fur within markets. We do have control over what items are sold on markets, however we could consider this issue specifically with Members.
I would be very grateful if you can send me the information you have relating to these issues and I will explore this and ask our members if they wish to address the issue through policy when it is reviewed.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and join the official Fur Free Markets scheme by contacting Cllr James Walsh, Leader of the Council and Portfolio Holder for Economy and Policy, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Sarah Meeton, Licensing Manager, email: Sarah.Meeten@arun.gov.uk .
