Plans for a co-operative which will see traders take over a popular market have been unveiled.
The Preston Business Improvement District (BID) has said it is looking to hand over the running of its three-times-a-year Lancashire Market to traders which flock to it from across the county.
It would continue to support and play a leading role in the event with the day-to-day organisation handed to the traders.
Mark Whittle, spokesman for the BID, said he did not expect the hand-over to take place within the next 12 months.
He said: “The long-term vision is to create a group which runs the market as a co-operative.
“The BID will continue to play a leading role and help finance the event, but we want to see it become more self-sustainable.
