Nuneaton market could be privatised as part of a council’s desperate bid to save money.
‘Externalising’ Nuneaton market is one of the options being considered by Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council as it battles to balance its books.
The Town Hall says it needs to find almost £1million in 2019/20 and that reviewing options to no longer run the market, and get an outside company to do so, could save £18,000.
The market dates back to 1226 and formed the backbone of Nuneaton becoming a market town.
Running every Saturday and Wednesday, the market, while smaller than what it used to be, is still one of the biggest street markets in the area.
