King's College Plaza outside James Clerk Maxwell Building is one of the proposed new trading pitches

The council says that the pitches would be suitable for single stalls selling a range of commodities including flowers, fruit, vegetables, and food and drink.

"We want to improve our shopping areas and street pitches are a good way of making them more attractive and vibrant, as well as increasing choice to shoppers," explains Cllr Sally Prentice, cabinet member for environment.

"We're also taking major steps to give Lower Marsh Market in Waterloo a new lease of life by working with a professional market operator to give the market a boost and help it meet its potential."

The six new trading pitches:
Tenison Way near Waterloo bus station
Chicheley Street, junction with Belvedere Road
Belvedere Road in front of Hayward Gallery
Belvedere Road paved area on eastern side of Jubilee Gardens
• King's College Plaza outside James Clerk Maxwell Building
BFI IMAX in front of main entrance to cinema

The authority has recently announced plans to outsource Lower Marsh Market to a specialist operator as well as plans to improve the street's physical appearance.
