Timescales for re-opening the Tuesday Market and public toilets at Barmote Croft:

At a meeting of the Town Council on 15th June, it was agreed that the facilities of the council remain closed for now, with a further review at the next council meeting on 6th July. 

This will give the council time to learn lessons from other markets and activities of other authorities such as Derbyshire Dales District Council. It will also allow the council to put in place any PPE, updated signage & messaging, go through appropriate staff training, and complete risk assessments.

The Town Council is acting more slowly than the DDDC because we have fewer resources and want to ensure the safety of residents and staff.
