Stratford Outdoor Market stall holders are “delighted” to be staying on the Broadway after plans to move it were scrapped.
Traders locked horns with Newham Council in April last year after a planning application was approved with a proposal to shift the stalls to a new site in The Grove as part of the Stratford public realm works taking place around the Olympic Games.
The market traders complained that the consultation process was “a disgrace” and the move would be bad for business as the number of people frequenting The Grove is far smaller than on the Broadway.
The council said it had “consulted extensively” through regular meetings and the move was postponed from April until October.
