COVERED Market traders are expected to find out next month how much rent they will have to pay for the next five years.
The market is owned by the city council and talks between traders and the council on the latest rent review began last year.
In April compromise talks collapsed and the issue is now being handled by an independent arbitrator.
The following month Chris Farren, head of the Covered Market Traders’ Association, called for rents to rise in line with inflation — nearly 10 times less than the figure the city council wants to impose.
