MARKET CANCELLED DUE TO TOUR DE FRANCE

The Town Council has reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the Monday Market on July 7th, the day Stage 3 of the Tour de France will be passing through the Town.  After receipt of the draft travel and crowd management plan, it became obvious that if the organisers were expecting up to 6,000 people to watch the event from the Market place, there would be no possibility the market could be held.

Essex County Council own the Market place (it is part of the public highway) and they are organising the road closures in conjunction with the event organisers.

The Town Council will be seeking compensation from the Organisers for the loss of the Market on July 7thImage
