Market traders are threatening to stop coming to Brigg after a number of changes to stall regulations.
The issue was raised at Brigg Town Council meeting after a letter was received from a resident who said changes needed to be made to keep Brigg as a market town.
The letter said some traders were considering not coming to Brigg because of changes to the market charter such as not allowing trailers to be parked behind the stalls.
Brigg market representative Karen Leach, owner of Pol’s Pantry, said she already knew of three traders who were not returning after Christmas, and said if nothing else was done this number would only grow.
“We have a problem, a really serious problem, and if this problem is not resolved, which we hope it is, then this market will not continue for much longer,” she said.
“The new rules really don’t work for Brigg and they are enforcing them with a sledge-hammer approach.
“The council is making it more expensive in a time when people can’t afford it.”
Brigg market currently charges £14 for a pitch, £5 more than Ashby, and traders face parking charges on top of this.
Mrs Leach also said that traders were charged for their pitch if they did not attend, and only received three weeks holiday a year.
