CALLS have been made for more trading space at Usk’s Christmas Festival after a typo meant the town council applied for 50 fewer pitches than needed.
Usk Town Council was granted block trading consent for 42 pitches in the town centre by Monmouthshire County Council in March.
The consent covers all regular markets and events held in the town throughout the year, with permission granted for pitches in New Market Street, Bridge Street, Maryport Street, Legion Car Park and near the Usk Bridge riverbank.
Upon submitting a new application for further pitches, the town council discovered that they had only asked for two pitches in Twyn Square – as opposed to the 52 they require for their festive market.
