Ely Masterplan Should Protect The Area's Current Attractions

I UNDERSTAND that ECDC s proposed budget cuts include no longer providing and erecting market stalls for those who want them from April.I also understand that traders have not been consulted and that a number of them would be forced to give up coming to Ely markets, while others could only continue with a reduction in their rent.Ely s three markets are some of the city s key attractions for locals and visitors alike, enticing people to spend their money not only at the markets but also at local shops and eateries.Jeoparizing this would seem incredibly short-sighted. What is the use of a Masterplan for future attractions, if current ones are not preserved?SALLY MACEACHERN

Ely's three markets are some of the city's key attractions for locals and visitors alike, enticing people to spend their money not only at the markets but also at local shops and eateries.

Jeoparizing this would seem incredibly short-sighted. What is the use of a Masterplan for future attractions, if current ones are not preserved?
