COUNCIL bosses are aiming to make peace with disgruntled market traders over ambitious plans to revitalise South Shields town centre.
Earlier this year some stallholders in the town’s ancient Market Place accused the council of “doing nothing” to help them.
They feared a £100m regeneration masterplan – which proposes to create a public green space, café and amphitheatre within the market square – would lead to a much-reduced area for traders to operate.
But now town hall chiefs have pledged to address those concerns, and they want stallholders to help shape the market’s future.
Traders are being invited to meet with council officials and share their ideas for improvements.
