Mad Market Mathematics

November 13, 2013


On Monday 11th November Friends of Leeds Kirkgate Market assembled outside the Civic Hall to present a crash course in maths to show Councillors that their figures for the future of Kirkgate Market just don’t add up.
The rents from Market traders have been making a profit for decades but the Council has reinvested little of this in its upkeep.
The Market needs urgent basic repairs but money for these has been delayed undemocratically while we wait for consultants to tell us, again, about grand plans for a redevelopment that will force many traders out. Traders and the public have to be put at the forefront of a plan to invest the profits from the market in improvements and ensure it serves all the local population, including the most vulnerable in our society.


When will they ever learn?
