Traders have expressed concern over the council’s plans to construct Watford’s new market largely out of shipping containers.
At a meeting last night representatives from the Market Working Group told Watford’s elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, the proposed eight foot containers are too small and they “would have to completely change how they work”.
Watford Borough Council has agreed to spend more than two million pounds on the venture. The market is due to move from its current indoor location in Charter Place to the car park in the former TJ Hughes building.
Toni Davis said: “It seems to me that what you are making is a little arcade. I have worked all my life in markets and this is not a market.”
