TRADERS at Bolton Market are facing a hike in utility bills of up to £780 a year.
But Bolton Council will put the increase in stall holders’ service charges on hold for two years — taking a financial hit of £150,000.
The Ashburner Street site is undergoing a major £4.5 million makeover which will result in expanded stalls and a different internal layout, leaving less rentable space.
The move means the council will have to increase what it collects to cover costs like electricity and waste disposal with stallholders set to be charged between an extra £5 and £15 a week.
