Markets and the Legal Framework
Last year NABMA organised two very successful legal seminars that provided an update on various issues relating to market law. They were delivered by Graham Wilson, NABMA’s Legal and Policy Consultant.
Following expressions of interest as received a further seminar is now arranged for Tuesday 28 February from 10.00 to 12.30
The event will have a charge of £75 plus VAT per delegate.
Please book using the form at the bottom of this page.
This interactive event, delivered by Zoom, will be an opportunity for practical help to learn about, and discuss this most interesting aspect of UK law.
The course tutor will again be Graham Wilson OBE, the NABMA Legal and Policy Consultant and co author of the seventh edition of Pease, Chitty and Cousins: Law of Markets and Fairs.
The seminar will cover the main legal framework of market law highlighting the history and the current provisions. There will be an opportunity to consider how case law and legislation impact on your local market situation.
From examining what actually constitutes a market to establishing and operating a market the seminar will cover day to day management issues and relationships with traders and other stakeholders.
We will consider in particular how market powers have evolved and how they can be used in a practical way. We will also look at the relationship between Parish and District/Unitary Councils where they each share market powers.
Importantly, there will be time for you to raise your individual queries and get help in resolving issues that impact on the running of your market.
