UTTOXETER Town Council is looking to spark the town’s struggling markets back to life after agreeing to take over responsibility from the borough council.
Despite hoping to take on the town’s Wednesday, Friday and Saturday markets on a permanent basis, the council agreed at a specially convened meeting last week to take over on a three-year licence from East Staffordshire Borough Council.
It was warned by officers that the markets were currently a ‘loss making operation’ but councillors felt they should take on the job ‘as a community service to the people of Uttoxeter’.
The agreement of the council to take on the markets is subject to the three-year licence being given approval by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC).
Before the decision was reached Labour councillor James Russell told the meeting that Uttoxeter is a market town and the market must be made to work.
