THE future of four county markets hangs in the balance after cabinet members approved a review on Monday (December 2).
Pembrokeshire County Council’s review will look at the future of its markets in Haverfordwest, Tenby, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock.
According to a report by the council’s director of development, put before cabinet members, the markets are considered “not profitable, when taking into account whole costs of management and future capital requirements”.
The report added: “The provision of markets is a discretionary function and the relatively modest size of the facilities limits the ability to generate significant socio-economic benefits for the county.
“Furthermore, there is no capacity being created for future investment into developing and improving the facilities.”
