THE number of market stalls operating in Boston could be set to increase under plans to to relax regulations.
Boston Borough Council has explored the possibility of redesignating a number of streets in the town to allow traders to set up on non-traditional market days, as long as they have the consent of the council.
Steve Lumb, head of planning and strategy for the borough, said the recommendation was in line with suggestions in the Mary Portas report on town centre improvement by cutting red tape for traders and work to make the town centre more attractive.
He added: “It would help improve the town centre offer by adding to all that was already available.
“The council would be looking for anything that was new and in addition to what was already available and regular traders need not fear that additional competition would be introduced.”
