JaneJ Good idea, but there are a lot of sole traders and hopeful startups and tying them down to an occupancy period could be fraught with danger for those that initially rent the building. I notice the Council are putting aside £368,063k for the decant of stallholders from Butchers/General Markets to I believe premises in Regent Street whilst rebuilding takes place. How much of that the Council will recover in rents from those that move remains to be seen
What would you do if you moved your business to a temporary location and found you got more customers in the new location — would you want to go back tio a building that has basically had a coat of paint and cleaned up. I know where I would want to stay..
You make a fair point. However, there are a lot of goings-on in markets and infighting. You can have the situation that a trader wants the monopoly of the goods he sells. It used to be when a trader enters into a stall agreement he has to nominate the goods he wants to trade in and the market’s supervision have the problems of sorting it out. This used to be the case in Wrexham Markets not so long ago. It is finding the person to initially set up the premises, from which to start up in. I can honestly say that if I was to go back into the market, I would have no idea what to trade in that would support my wife and two kids. It is so, so hard.
Yor last point about what to sell may be a deciding factor for many stall holders who may decide to give up and not even reopen – as we are now a City there is no need to maintain the fase image of being a Market town..
