Gedling Borough Council does not operate, licence or run any markets in this area but a private market is held at the Market Place, Arnold and prospective traders are advised to visit the Supervisors Office on the market on any day the market is trading to discuss pitches etc.
Persons considering setting up a temporary market in the area need to provide the Council with at least one month's notice (unless the event is solely or principally for charitable, social, sporting or political purposes) to meet the requirements of Section 37 Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982. Details of the proposed market should be made to the Licensing Service.
Contact must also be made with the Markets and Fairs Section at Nottingham City Council as specific historic charter arrangements are in place to control local markets.
Prospective markets and car boot sales beyond a single event should also contact the Development Control Service, Planning & Environment Department at this Authority to discuss planning permission implications. The market will also require registering as a food business-if food vendors are to trade there-see our Food pages for how to register as a food business.
