ALLERDALE TO BE RUN IN-HOUSE
Allerdale Borough Council is to take the management of markets in-house from the beginning of June this year.
Markets in Allerdale are currently run by Geraud Markets UK and are held in Workington, Keswick, Silloth and Wigton.
The change, which comes into effect from 1st June, when Geraud’s contract comes to an end, will allow the Council to increase its income, whilst not changing the market fee structure for traders, as well as giving it the flexibility to try new market formats to meet the needs of business, residents and visitors.
The Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Mike Johnson, said: “Our markets in Workington, Keswick, Silloth and Wigton provide good business platforms for traders as well as being valued by residents and visitors.
“Bringing the management of the service in-house, we hope to build on and improve the markets we currently offer, which we hope will be supported by the traders and customers.
“I would like to place on record the Council’s thanks to Geraud who have successfully operated the markets contract over many years.”
Council staff have been talking to as many traders as possible at markets to explain the change and answer any questions. A dedicated market manager will be appointed to work with traders on a day-to-day basis, to make sure they continue to receive excellent service to support their businesses.
