On 10 July a major fire ripped through Camden Market. This is not the first time in recent years this iconic area has been devastated.
Camden Market is part of the character of Camden and the Liberal Democrats are determined that better safety should be built in to any replacement while retaining its unique spirit.
Serious doubts are emerging over the Council’s health & safety enforcement: two market fires; fire doors and unsafe gas installation at Chalcots; pavement encroachment in Queen’s Crescent; to name just a few.
Local Liberal Democrat Jill Fraser said, “The market’s owner has said it may not be possible to save parts of the building. Any replacements should retain the character of the original market. We want to keep hold of what makes Camden special.”
