That’s appalling, Jathbee.

PeterP, there’s a *Wigan Watch video from 17th Feb that discusses some of the issues you mention - the outdoor market is going to be completely closed off so to reach the indoor market will mean a lengthy detour. At March’s Full Council Meeting (Link), Con Cllr Michael Winstanley moved that market traders have a reduced rent to compensate for the disruption over the next two years, but this didn’t get the go ahead. Any liaising between the Council and market traders has been an utter shambles, I think it’s fair to say the Council haven’t tried at all.

*Wigan Watch videos are the work of Wigan town centre trader, Tony Porter, who is so upset with recent events he’s decided to stand as the Independent candidate for Pemberton in this week’s local election.
