Burton News by Helen Kreft
A COUNCIL has ‘created a monster’ by moving Burton’s market to Station Street, a trader has claimed.
Wendy Newitt, of Woods Fruit and Veg, also blasted East Staffordshire Borough Council, for refusing to reduce the rent for traders in the market hall after the outdoor market was moved to Station Street.
She said: “Most of the traders have left because they are not making enough money to pay the rent. They have written to the council asking for a reduction in rent, due to the drastic decrease in footfall, which the council has created by moving the outdoor market. The answer was very scathing and basically said it’s up to each individual to advertise their business.
