MARKET traders in Horncastle are calling for an urgent meeting with East Lindsey District Council in a bid to solve a long-running dispute which they claim is threatening to put them out of business.
The News revealed last month that traders were ?unhappy about a planned increase in rent and what they called “poor communication” by the council.
ELDC defended its policy and has now written to traders outlining a number of initiatives and explaining the reasons behind the rental increase and a new system for payments.
Alan Grant, who runs a card stall on Horncastle Market, said: “We want a face-to-face meeting with the council to get all this sorted for once and for all.
“We are fed up with all the arguments. I’ve spent 30-odd years building up a business and I don’t want to lose it. Other traders feel the same.
