Fees frustration for Wellingborough traders

Street traders in Wellingborough say they`re seeing a hike in fees.

They claim it`s a significant increase on last year.

The Council’s resources committee agreed to put up its street trading fees in February.

After that there were a number of complaints from the traders who said the rise would threaten their businesses.

The Market Working Group has since re-considered the charges and agreed they were correct but admit the way they were implemented wasn`t clear.

The resources committee will be asked to give further clarification on the issue at a meeting next week.
