ASSURANCES have been given that disruption to traders will be kept to a minimum as the next stage in the redevelopment of Abergavenny Town Hall was given the green light.
Councillors on Monmouthshire County Council have voted to proceed with refurbishment plans of the grade II-listed building in Cross Street.
The plans will see a long-awaited community hub located within the building and promises to provide an improved library service.
But at a full meeting of the council on Thursday, Cllr Tudor Thomas (Labour, Priory ward) said traders had expressed “serious concerns” about the refurbishment causing disruption.
“They are worried about the disruption while the refurbishment takes place,” he said.
“If the market hall is shut for four or five weeks most of those traders will not have enough financial reserves to see them over that period.”
