Council offers a range of solutions to support displaced market traders

Bridgend County Borough Council are in discussion with traders from Bridgend Indoor Market on a variety of options to ensure they can continue trading in the run up to Christmas. The council have been working with traders and local property landlords; including the owners of The Rhiw Shopping Centre, to identify suitable alternative premises to allow traders to get up and running again as soon as possible.

Traders wishing to take the proposed alternative premises have been offered space, and assurances that the rent will not be in excess of the rent paid in the market, for a period of six months. The council is also providing its full support towards any set up and relocation costs and are currently awaiting business owner’s decisions to move this forward.

The council are now awaiting a further specialist inspection which will determine the scale of any remedial works. For more information on Bridgend Indoor Market, please visit the website.
