L7 – Can a market change its historic day of operation?

A Market Operator can change the market day but it is necessary to be clear about the market powers relevant to the market before taking a decision. A Royal Charter might limit the market day to a particular day whereas Part 111 of the Food Act 1984 gives discretion to appoint any day. There needs to be a formally recorded decision – i.e. It needs to be minuted by the Council. In addition to being clear about the powers relied upon the Market operator needs to ensure that any other approvals such as highways and planning are met.
