Plans to transform Mexborough’s outdoor market were thrown into turmoil this week after a survey allegedly showed hundreds of shoppers and the majority of traders are against the scheme.
Work is due to begin this month on a £400, 000 council project to demolish the rigid outdoor stalls on York Square and replace them with gazebo style pop-ups.
But disgruntled stallholders said they have carried out their own survey which revealed just two out of about 40 market traders are in favour of the project. In addition, only 12 shoppers out of about 400 said they supported the scheme in another poll.
The majority want the permanent stalls to remain and would instead like to see the money spent on a new roof.
