THE future of a market that has helped rejuvenate Middlewich town centre hangs in the balance.
A trial period for the monthly artisan market in Wheelock Street has ended and organisers are hoping to make it a permanent feature.
But the event may prove to be unsustainable because it is being hampered with huge fees by Cheshire East Council.
It is understood that traffic management and road closure expenses could cost more than £2,000 for each event.
A council spokesman said: “Cheshire East Council believes the artisan market would prove to be a great asset for Middlewich and we very much support any initiative which brings more people into our town centres.
