TRADERS have been accused of “talking down” Oxford’s Covered Market in a row raging over proposed rent rises.
City executive board member for development Colin Cook called for positive promotion of the market behind the High Street.
It comes after plans to increase rent by an average of 40 per cent for tenants sparked fury among traders.
Mr Cook claimed tenants would still be getting “good value for money” even after the rent increases.
He said: “It’s got to the stage where we feel we need to explain our position and some of the misinformation coming out from some of the traders.”
