A MARKET town is to sacrifice one of its two existing car-parks as part of the drive towards a new 42.5m bypass.
The sale of Bedale’s Auction Mart car-park will help fund a now-approved gateway car-park by the bypass on the edge of the town.
The sale was confirmed by the leader of Hambleton District Council, Mark Robson, following a cabinet discussion that took place behind closed doors.
The decision was made despite mounting anger among traders and residents that people are being driven out of the town because of concerns over parking in the centre.
Traders and members of Leeming, Exelby and Newton Parish Council met Bedale Town councillors to raise their concerns.
