MARKET traders will not be forced to move from Eastgate Market if they do not believe it should relocate, city council boss Paul James has said.
A private meeting with traders will take place on January 22 when they will learn of the relocation options open to them.

He is writing to the firm to see if they would consider occupying the upstairs space in The Eastgate shopping centre – and to see if the former plan to move into the old Marks and Spencer building, in Northgate Street, really is dead in the water, or whether it could be potentially revived.
