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: Currently no street trading consent holders are authorised to sell real fur. However at present there are no specific conditions listed on the consents preventing the sale if permission was to be issued.
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 adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Tony Ireland ,Service Manager, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
