Chippenham Weekly Market – Friday

  1. As the Manager of Emery Gate, I would like to raise my concerns with regards to the Friday high street closure/market setting up.

    I appreciate that this action has been taken to protect the market traders whilst setting up, however, I am currently sat watching the CCTV and note that the high street emergency access is been totally blocked by vans. This is of great concern to me. If we had a fire, or required an ambulance (or any of the other shops or the Town Hall on the high street)the emergency service vehicles wouldn’t be able to get through.

    This is unacceptable and I will need to contact the fire officer to discuss the situation.

    If you would like to view the CCTV, please feel free to contact me on 01249 656584.

    Kind regards,

    Nicola Milne

    • Hi Nicola,

      Just to update you, we have passed on your concerns to Ton Ince who manages the market and asked him to ensure the market traders leave full access for emergency vehicles.
