for Sutton Council said: “This shocking case demonstrates how seriously the courts take the sale of unsafe and counterfeit goods, especially when – as there so often is – there is a risk to the public.”
We haven’t forgotten the Elephant
How could we - we seem to have been cover ing the various plans for this beleaguered shopping centre and market since we took over the Chat in 2005. But now things seem to be
moving again with news that thirty six local traders have been offered the opportunity to move into new affordable business space just metres away from their current location. Southwark Council and
developer Delancey say they have worked closely with individual businesses to find the right solution for them. Some have been offered
spaces in the planned retail hub at Castle Square, some are moving into the affordable units reserved for shopping centre traders at the base of the Elephant One building next door, and others have opted for space in the affordable ‘Elephant Arcade’ at the ground floor of Perronet House. Once of fers have been
accepted, businesses will be supported to make the necessary arrangements for
their future move. But spaces have not yet
been found for all businesses from the shopping centre and market in their preferred locations.. The council’s markets team wi l l also continue to work with market traders interested in moving to other local pitches in the area. Cll r Kieron Wi l l iams,
Cabinet Member for Business, Skills and Innovation, said: “My focus is on making sure local businesses who have put so much into the area can stay and prosper. That so many have now been offered affordable units in the heart of Elephant is a really important step forward. “I’m delighted the council
has been able to provide the new units at Perronet House and it’s good to see Delancey allocating affordable units to shopping centre traders too. The priority now is to find homes for the remaining businesses. I’m determined to make sure they get the support they need, so we can keep and grow Elephant’s fantastic mix of independent traders.” With no closure date
announced, the shopping centre remains open for business.
Work continues apace at New Covent Garden with news that there has been some alteration to parking by D Road as part of the
final stage of Phase One work. To compensate for a loss of parking due to a new hoarding there will be some additional spaces above the hoarding area, and towards the east end of D Road. These are for tenants and customers to use. The se change s a re

last month Heads of Terms and Relocation Guides were issued to the 18 tenants moving in Phase One. This includes information which will enable these tenants to design their new fit out, due to start November this year. New units will become operational by April 2020. During April work will start
on refurbishing the two lifts in the Multi-Storey Car Park (MSCP), which its aimed to have back in use by the end of the year. This work will be contained to the lift lobbies and will not disrupt pedestrian or vehicle access into the MSCP. A spokesman for the market
said: “There are multiple steps involved in the refurbishment of both lifts which is why the process itself is long. These works are also taking place within a confined space, which creates additional restrictions. “We appreciate that customers have had to

wait to carry out repairs in line with the sequencing of works starting on the Link House Bridge. The bridge interconnects wi th the location of the MSCP and the lifts, therefore grouping the work together was a way to minimises overall disruption to the area.” Please also be warned
