The Borough Council in Wellingborough is defending its decision to ban parking in the town’s market area.
The move has angered traders.
But, Councillor Martin Griffiths, chairman of the council’s market working group has told Connect FM it makes sense.
He says traders can drop of their wares and ask a fellow stall holder to keep an eye out for them as they park in th eallocated spaces nearby.
The move follows a number of incidents where vehicles have driven through the market, narrowly missing pedestrians.
