In Newtown NSW on “Review request under...” at 1 Bedford Street Newtown NSW 2042:

Nicola Perrry commented

Closing the markets was a ridiculous idea.

The stalls did not compete with local businesses. They encouraged people to come out into the area, look at the bric a brac on offer (and maybe buy something from enterprising locals) and then go spend their money at a cafe or bookshop down the road.

The markets are a tremendous asset to Newtown and the surrounding area and removing them would be detrimental to the wider community.
