City council planning to move operation to Washwood Heath or Witton.
Birmingham’s Wholesale Market traders say they are bitterly disappointed at being told they will have to leave the city centre within three years.
The traders, who have fought a two- year campaign against eviction from the Pershore Street site, face moving to either the former LDV factory site at Washwood Heath, or the former IMI site at Witton in 2016.
Birmingham City Council, which owns the crumbling Wholesale Markets, says that staying in Digbeth is ‘unaffordable’ and claims it has private developers lined up to build new market facilities to the traders’ own specifications, which the council could then manage.
