PLANS that could see Ledbury’s Saturday market expanded have prompted a mixed reaction from town traders.
The town’s charter market working party has agreed to look into an ambitious plan by town councillor Tony Bradford, who says he wants to see Ledbury’s offering to match that of Tewkesbury.
He said a boosted Saturday market, which could be launched by next Easter, would bring in revenue and help the town council pay for extra services he believes it will be forced to take on from cash-strapped Herefordshire Council. These extra services are likely to include the public toilets, he said.
However, some shop owners have claimed the expanded market could take away trade from their stores. Currently, Ledbury’s Saturday market, which takes place on a site near the Market House, is limited to 12 pitches.
