London’s Markets Steering Group15th December 2016 / Posted by CRP Team
CRP is very pleased to sit on the Greater London Authority Markets Steering Group, and to support the work that it is doing researching and quantifying the multiple and growing contributions of markets to many aspects of London life.
CRP first recognised the potential of street and covered markets when it submitted its successful URBACT funding bid in October 2012, culminating in the Sustainable Urban Markets Action Plan for central London, led by Owain Jones (now working at CRP partner London Borough of Lambeth).
One of the 28 recommendations in this CRP report was the convening of a London Markets Board. CRP looks forward to continuing to work with the GLA as it recruits to and sets up this new addition to the London scene.
