A POPULAR Christmas market in Usk will be allowed to expand to create a “more accessible” event this year.
Annual permission for 178 trading pitches across the town was approved by Monmouthshire County Council’s licensing committee on Tuesday.
Usk Town Council already had permission for 42 pitches but a typo meant that they had applied for only two spaces in Twyn Square – 50 fewer than they needed.
The revised application also sought permission to establish 86 pitches at Maryport South Street which will be transformed into a “winter wonderland” for the Usk Christmas Festival.
“We had some interest in creating a winter wonderland zone in Maryport Street South car park,” said Usk town councillor Jan Richards.
