Have your say on Westminster’s street markets

You have an opportunity to help shape the future of Westminster’s street markets.

Within the City of Westminster, there are six regular street markets: Berwick Street, Church Street, Maida Hill, Rupert Street, Strutton Ground and Tachbrook Street. The council is asking residents, community groups and traders to give their views on a strategy to help the markets thrive. We want to help the markets become more environmentally and financially sustainable, offer a more diverse mix of products and invest in new IT and infrastructure. The consultation also considers proposed changes to daily street trading licence fees and charges, which would be the first changes since 2006. Read the consultation booklet for a summary of the key proposals.

How to give your feedback

Please complete a survey by 29 October. Hard copies of the consultation booklet and survey are available in libraries and community centres near market sites. You can also email marketsconsultation@westminster.gov.uk or call 020 7641 5211 to request a hard copy in the post.

We are also holding a series of drop-in sessions throughout September and October, giving people the chance to discuss what products and services they want from their markets. This feedback will be used to help produce individual plans for each site, focused on what local stakeholders want. You don’t need to book to take part, just turn up at a time that works for you. Here is the schedule of events:
