Nottingham City Council has the following markets: Clinton Street, Victoria Centre, Bulwell, St Ann’s, Hyson Green, Bilborough, Clifton, Nottingham Car Boot at Colwick.
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: When deciding whether to approve traders and what they trade, the council considers the ethical nature of the products. These considerations include the source of the product, whether or not the fur is a by-product and clear signage stating the origin of the product to the public.
The council can advise that a new policy is currently being drafted, subject to approval, for Nottingham City Council markets to become Fur Free in the future.
They have asked for our Fur Free Markets scheme information to consider.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr david Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
