Ormskirk Advertiser by Rob Pattinson
Ormskirk market traders go on rent strike in protest at perceived lack of support from West Lancashire council.
The strike, organised by the Ormskirk market traders committee, has seen more than half of stall holders withhold rent for April.
The group said it has taken the drastic step due to frustration at the lack of help or interest from the council, and fears the market could die out if issues raised aren’t addressed.
Paul Patterson, one of five traders who make up the market committee, which represents all the stallholders on Aughton Street and Moor Street said: “The market is struggling. Over the last 18 months things have got worse and worse, turnover is down by 50% in most cases. No-one wants to leave but this is now the most expensive market in the north west. All we want is some support and the chance to explain our position to those who make decisions. “We’ve had seven meetings with the council with no reaction from them in terms of answers for how to go forward.”
