Emergency Committee vote to reopen markets and public toilets

The reopening of public toilets and our award-winning Bakewell stall market was discussed by the Council's Emergency Committee on 11 June.

The "virtual" meeting was broadcast live on our YouTube channel and can be viewed again below.



The meeting voted to reopen the 10 public toilets from 22 June on a restricted-hours trial basis between the hours of 11am and 3pm, ensuring the facilities can be operated and cleaned safely during the continuing coronavirus crisis.

During this time they will be cleaned by council staff on three occasions and the situation will be reviewed after a two-week trial.

The meeting also agreed that the council's award-winning Bakewell stall market will reopen on Monday 22 June, with stall numbers reduced to a maximum of 90 to enable social distancing measures to be introduced, including a one-way configuration for shoppers.

The market's opening hours will be reduced from 9.30am to 2pm while the coronavirus crisis continues.
