Greater London Authority
Restrictive legislative and planning frameworks and policies, limited availability of adequate infrastructure with regards to waste management, storage and transport of goods are among the challenges that London markets face to become effective contributors to the local and sustainable economy.
Creating the right balance between markets as tourist attractions versus markets meeting local retail needs, and maintaining the balance of commodities given legal constraints and tensions between stalls and shops are also important challenges.
London is particularly willing to identify and extend markets management good practice and to use markets as beacons of sustainability.
