In October 2010 a review took place of Outdoor Markets in the city.
Council approved the future strategy for Outdoor Markets in March 2011. The approval means that Council will move to a facilitation role, rather than one involving direct management and operation of markets.
An Outdoor Market Policy and set of Operating Guidelines have been developed to ensure that a suitable framework exists to support and facilitate future Outdoor Markets in the city.
Council now seek public comment on the Policy, Operating Guidelines and list of preferred market locations to ensure relevant considerations have been addressed in developing the framework, to ensure future market operators are equipped to operate a sustainable market in the city.

Following your feedback, Council aims to be ready to support and facilitate market operators in January 2012.
