TRADERS have held talks with council officials over bringing in free afternoon parking near Doncaster Market.

Doncaster Market Traders’ Federation say its has heard ‘supportive noises’ from the authority’s markets department.

But Mayor Peter Davies says the current financial climate means the changes cannot be done at present.

Traders want initiatives to be introduced to encourage more people to visit the market.

Mr Davies has proposed a freeze in parking charges.
