Havering Council working on plans to safely reopen Romford Market

The council is hoping to announce when the market will reopen very soon

Havering Council is working on plans to safely reopen Romford Market as lockdown measures are eased across the country. 

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced outdoor markets and car showrooms will be allowed to operate again from Monday, 1 June. 

However, this is contingent on them meeting government guidelines to protect people. 

As a result, the council has been talking to stallholders about putting social distancing measures in place to ensure the safety of staff and shoppers. 

It is thought the risk of transmitting Covid-19 is lower in outdoor areas, like markets and garden centres, where there is more open space. 

The Leader of Havering Council, Councillor Damian White, said: “It is encouraging to see that residents are eager for the historic Romford Market to reopen. 

“Now that lockdown measures are starting to be eased, we are working with our stallholders on plans to reopen the Market whilst maintaining social distancing to ensure the safety of both staff, stallholders and shoppers.

“We do not have a firm date for reopening yet, but we hope to make a public announcement very soon.”
