A challenge for the new Labour Council

May 31, 2010

Labour will govern in minority in Leeds City Council with support from two Green councillors. When in opposition, Labour councillors were quick to criticise the decline of the Market under the previous coalition and supported both the market traders and our campaign group. Now is the time for them to turn words into meaningful action.
Friends of Leeds Kirkgate Market challenges the new Council to meet key demands to help secure the future of the Market:

  • Significant rent reduction

  • Immediate appointment of a new Market manager with a proven track record

  • Re-invest the market’s £1m plus annual surplus into urgent repairs

  • Put the traders and their expertise at the heart of  Market strategy and decision making
