UPDATE BELOW* THE future operator of Barnard Castle‘s weekly Wednesday market will be expected to pay Durham County Council an annual licence fee of at least £5,000.
As part of a county-wide strategy, operators are being sought to regenerate and develop the traditional markets in nine towns.
Following an information day in July, tender documents have now been made available to any interested parties.
County officials say the markets could be run by community groups, trade consortia or specialist operators.
TOWN councillors are being urged to rule out a bid to run their weekly Wednesday market.
Barnard Castle Town Council has been considering submitting a bid to run the market, either on its own or with other groups in the town, as part Durham County Council’s proposals to find new a new operator.
