Proposed Monthly Markets at Governor Phillip Reserve

Council has received an application from Eclectic Markets and Events to hold a monthly market at Governor Phillip Reserve. The market proposes to sell a range of high quality arts, craft, fashion and food. The Markets would be held on the third Saturday of the month between 9am and 2pm.
Governor Phillip Reserve hosts a range of events throughout the year and some could potentially conflict with a Saturday market. To ensure that the market does not dominate or conflict with other usage, it would not be given exclusive use of the site and part of any conditions would be to allow other events to take place.
Council has resolved to advertise these markets for community feedback for 14 days.

Please address all comments in relation to this mater to the General Manager, Hawkesbury City Council titled ''Submission - Proposed Monthly markets at Governor Philip Reserve'' by 18 April 2014. Please return to Council by any of the below methods:

Mail: PO Box 146, WINDSOR NSW 2756
