The Chief Executive submitted a report for consideration by members as to whether the Council should provide a reduction in rent in the 2020/2021 financial year to any of the market traders because of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Members were reminded that the Market has been open throughout the various national lockdowns and local restrictions, however some of the cabins have had to close due to the nature of their business.
The report provided details of the support grants provided to each of the businesses and the amount of rental arrears owed by some of the businesses.
RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
1. Agree not to offer rent reductions to any of our Market Traders.
2. Agree to progress the collection of rent arrears in a consistent and sympathetic manner.
