Metal fences have been put up between Wellingborough’s market and the adjacent taxi rank after concerns from traders regarding wind and security, a recent news report in the local media has revealed.
A Wellingborough Council spokesman said: “The fence was erected on the recommendation of the Market Working Group, which includes market trader representatives, in response to concerns raised when enforcing the parking policy prohibiting traders from parking on the market during the day. “These concerns were regarding exposure to the elements (particularly wind) and security affecting stalls 90-99. “The fence is still a work in progress.”
However, Wellingborough’s Civic Society says the fences are an ‘eyesore’ and should be taken down. Chairman Shena Krupin said: “The structure is an ugly eyesore within our town conservation area situated right next to the beautiful building of the parish church.”
“The society has conveyed their disgust to the council about the structure and sincerely hopes it will disappear as quickly as it appeared.
