BATTLE lines have been drawn in the fight for Middlewich artisan market’s future.
The town’s two ruling authorities have clashed over who should fund the monthly event in Wheelock Street.
As reported in the Guardian, the market’s trial period was a success but Cheshire East Council will not waive traffic management and road closure fees as it is a commercial event.
In a statement, a spokesman described it as a ‘matter for negotiation between Middlewich Town Council and the artisan market operator’.
But Town Mayor Simon McGrory has slammed the authority for standing in the way of an event that has ‘regenerated the shopping experience in Middlewich’.
