A POLITICAL row has erupted after a plan to pump more than £1.3 million into Doncaster’s markets was put on hold for a second time.
Mayor Peter Davies is spearheading plans for a massive refurbishment of the town centre market totalling nearly £1 million, as well as plans to plough more than £300,000 into markets at Thorne, Rossington and Mexborough.
But at a stormy council meeting at the Mansion House, the plan was voted down for a second time by Labour councillors who claim the proposal still lacks detail.
An angry Mr Davies hit out at his opponents, accusing them of playing party politics and stifling Doncaster’s redevelopment.
He stormed: “I am absolutely appalled. These disgraceful delaying tactics are beyond belief.
“If someone from the Labour Party would come and see me, we might be able to sort out a compromise. Surely we all want money to be spent on the markets – the jewel in Doncaster’s crown?
