Here is the Council’s response to our FoI 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: It is not something we have a specific category for although all Eastbourne Borough Council events trade documents have a clause banning any items deemed inappropriate by Eastbourne Borough Council.
The Council does not prohibit 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 adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Margaret Bannister, Cabinet Portfolio holder for Tourism and Leisure Services, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
