TRADERS at Oxford’s Covered Market say they are “in limbo” and claim council chiefs have fallen silent over a planned rent hike.
Almost a month ago they wrote to Oxford City Council saying they would not pay a flat-rate 20 per cent increase.
But they say they still haven’t had a response.
A five-year rent agreement should have been signed in March 2012 for another five years but the two sides cannot agree a rise.
The Covered Market Traders Association (CMTA) wrote to the council to say it will pay three to 12 per cent recommended by an arbitrator.
