If traders don’t/can’t come up with a plan for the indoor market, what will you do? There must be some other means rather than selling it?
Traders were given an opportunity to put forward a business plan to take over the running of the market. However, following discussions with traders, it was decided to look for an external partner to take over the running of the Covered Market and the twice-weekly outdoor markets. Efforts to identify a preferred partner are ongoing and the markets will trade as normal in the meantime. In the event that efforts to secure an external partner are unsuccessful, the Council would continue to work with traders to reach a solution. However, we are confident there will be sufficient interest that the right partner can be found.Back
