The report follows an consultation exercise undertaken at the end of last year and the general decline in trader occupancy in Wrexhams three markets.
The report states occupancy at the markets has reduced from 90% in 2007 to around 70% at the present time. This is compared to a 10% reported vacancy rate in town centre shops – we assume this figure is based on Council owned properties rather than the town centre as a whole!

There are currently 109 stalls based across all of the indoor markets in Wrexham, employing 250 people. However the council have said that occupancy levels of the markets have dropped from 90% in 2007, to around 70%.
