Notice of Motion - Councillor C. Wood - Market Provision

“Following the services scrutiny meeting on 18/7/18 it was discovered that there is blatant discrimination from this council towards Biddulph town regards the funding allocation for the provision of markets and financial support for the 3 towns of the Staffordshire Moorlands, at the presentation there was no mention of Biddulph market which was disgraceful and no visible support financially from this council to maintain and improve the market provision in Biddulph. I would like to move that this council shares out the money allocated towards market provision to all the 3 towns equally, based on population of each town and that Biddulph gets ongoing support to improve the market provision.”
