Ipswich Market Act 2004

2004 CHAPTER iii

An Act to enable the holding of markets on the highway in Ipswich; to make new provision for the regulation of those markets; and for connected purposes.

[1st July 2004]

WHEREAS—

(1)Ipswich Borough Council (“the Council”) was established under the Local Government Act 1972 (c. 70) as a district council for the town of Ipswich (“the town”):

(2)The Council is empowered to hold and regulate a market in the town by virtue of Royal Charters granted to its predecessor local authority by Edward II on 20 May 1317 and Henry VIII on 25 November 1518:

(3)In exercise of these powers, a market is held at a site in Cornhill in the town:

(4)The expansion of the market would secure its financial viability and medium-term future, but this is not currently possible because the land adjoining the present market site forms part of the highway:

(5)There are no other suitable sites available for an expanded market in the town:

(6)Modern provisions relating to markets ought to be applied to the Council’s market:

(7)The purposes of this Act cannot be effected without the authority of Parliament:

(8)In relation to the promotion of the Bill for this Act the requirements of section 239 of the Local Government Act 1972 (c. 70) (powers of joint and local authorities to apply for further powers, etc.) have been observed:

May it therefore please your Majesty that it may be enacted, and be it enacted, by the Queen’s Most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—
