COUNCILLORS last night called for plans to be redrafted on the facelift of Doncaster markets – to include outlying parts of the borough too.
Mayor Peter Davies has drawn up proposals for a £1.3 million revamp of the town centre outdoor market, which would see 138 stalls removed and replaced with 100 more modern structures.
The scheme would also see 50 removable stalls made available, and stalls would be arranged to make the current Wool Market more visible and accessible.
The revamped market would also have new paving, street furniture, and lighting, as well as replacement water, electricity and telecommunications connections. Mr Davies has said money left over could be spent on Thorne and Mexborough markets.
But, at last night’s full council meeting, Labour called for specific plans to be outlined to look at what could be done for the markets in the borough’s outlying towns too, and voted to defer making a decision on giving the plan the go-ahead.
