Leyburn Town Council

DL8 5AB

Leyburn Town Council has the following markets: Weekly Friday market, Monthly Sunday 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? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.

A:  I can confirm that the Markets run by Leyburn Town Council do not sell any real fur. When traders apply for a pitch on the market they have to fill out an application stating exactly what is to be sold and this has to then be approved by Councillors before they can trade.

However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.  They have asked to see our fur free markets policy.

Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Charlotte Smith, Clerk to the council,  email: contact@leyburntowncouncil.co.uk

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:  NO

Market officers patrol the market throughout opening hours, however, we are very much reliant on feedback from customers to assist us in identifying real fur. In the event of a complaint being received we will investigate, including taking the appropriate professional advice.

In terms of enforcement, if a concern is identified then we will speak with the trader to ensure that they understand the issue and ask them to refrain from selling the offending item. If the trader refuses to cooperate then there is a clause in our trading agreements that a trader must not bring the council into disrepute which can be enforced.

However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.
