Burton Mail by HELEN KREFT
“HAVE the guts and tell us what you want.” That was the demand made by Station Street food traders to councillors, who they have accused of leaving them ‘jumping through hoops’.
All nine Station Street traders, accompanied by Councillor Bill Ganley, held a meeting with the Mail in which they alleged they were struggling to get answers from East Staffordshire Borough Council over their futures.
In a meeting held with the authority on August 22, traders were told they would be set ‘challenges’ and needed to offer ‘healthy food’, with a possibility that pitches would be decreased from five to three.
The traders say they have not yet received official confirmation they will be staying in Station Street and not moving to Market Place — as previously proposed by the council — despite the decision being made and agreed during a cabinet meeting on August 13.
