Hot food traders were concerned they would be ‘scattered’ across the city, but Cllr Jim O’Boyle has said only two stalls will be moved for precinct work.
Food traders in Coventry city centre feared for their livelihoods yesterday when rumours surfaced their pitches could be moved.
Traders at the Market Way food vans say they were mistakenly told by market managers that leases on their stalls would not be renewed.
Discussions are ongoing at Coventry City Council about the future of the businesses in the precinct as work continues to renovate the Upper Precinct and remove the green escalator.
Hot food sellers near the former BHS believed the council’s markets team planned to axe their leases.
But Cllr Jim O’Boyle has attempted to assuage their concerns, telling them only two stall holders on the Upper Precinct will move.
