Market traders will be able to pitch for free on an annual Erewash Market Day in Ilkeston and Long Eaton after councillors gave the scheme the thumbs-up.
Opposition Labour councillors suggested during the full council meeting on Thursday that they hope the day will encourage new entrepreneurs to ‘gain a low cost foothold in the retail trade’ by taking advantage of the offer.
Introducing the motion, Cllr John Frudd, who runs a barbers shop in Ilkeston town centre, said: “Ilkeston is in danger of becoming derelict –action must be taken as a matter of some urgency.
Cllr Margaret Griffiths said of her party’s plan: “It’s got a long way to go but it’s a good beginning. Put Ilkeston o the map and see what it is that attracts people to the market.”
In a rare show of cross party unity, Tory councillors unanimously backed the plan.
