Mixed Views on Market Scheme; PARKING, SPACE AND STORAGE AT NEW SITE ARE CONCERNS OF STALLHOLDERS


Byline: Duncan Gibbons

NEWS of the market's move was not greeted with wholesale satisfaction by stallholders and shoppers.

Some traders were angry at the small size of the proposed new market and at the planned loss of the usually busy Monday slot. Others gave a cautious welcome to the news. Report by DUNCAN GIBBONS.

Legal curb on pitch numbers

THE leader of Rugby Borough Council, Craig Humphrey, said the law restricted the number of stalls allowed around Market Place.

"For legal reasons, a fullscale market up Sheep Street and High Street is not allowed but we can have up to 20 stalls around the Clock Tower," said Cllr Humphrey (Con, Bilton).

"Unfortunately, an inevitable consequence of that will be the loss of some traders, but the Gas Street site will stay up and running until April and they will be able to see their time through until then."

He said the 20 stalls would be high quality ones "selling merchandise that people want", including fruit and vegetables, fresh and cooked meat, clothes and pet food.

Cllr Humphrey said: "It is clear from our research that shoppers don't want to see the existing Gas Street market simply relocating to the town centre.

"They want something substantially different in content and quality - a view that is also shared by town centre retailers."

"I DO not mind at all provided it's fair to everybody and benefits the public - it will be better all round.

"I quite like it here but a lot of our regulars are older people so it will be easier for them to get to us from the nearby bus stops.
