Consultation into proposals to re-establish a market in Cockermouth

We are currently consulting local people, businesses and groups about plans to reestablish a regular, outdoor market in Cockermouth.

The objective of an outdoor market in Cockermouth would be to provide a valuable local service to residents, provide an additional business opportunity for market traders, provide first time entrepreneurs with a low-cost option to trade and additional reasons for tourists to visit.

We're inviting comments from interested residents, businesses and visitors through an online survey. The deadline for responses is 5pm on Friday, June 25th, 2021. Click the button below to take part.
