COUNCILLORS have called a special meeting in a bid to save a condemned town centre market.
Devastated traders at Newton Aycliffe were given a month’s notice of the weekly market’s closure after town centre owners Freshwater terminated its agreement with the licence holder, Great Aycliffe Town Council.
With no alternative sites available, the council said it had no choice but to close the market, which trades for the final time on Tuesday, May 27.
However, on Wednesday, May 21, an extraordinary council meeting will be held to re-examine possible sites, including derelict land on Greenwell Road, close to The Cubby community cafe.
