Mexborough’s market traders have claimed a new council scheme aimed at filling empty stalls could actually put small holdings out of business.
Doncaster Council swept away the ‘anti-competition’ custom in the market last week in the hope of boosting trade in the town.
The informal practise prevented new traders from taking space close to existing ones selling similar items.
But the new commodities guidelines means anyone wanting space in the market should now be accommodated wherever possible.
While market bosses believe this could lead to the creation of new jobs, Mexborough’s indoor market traders were more cautious about the move this week.
