COUNCILLORS and traders in Mexborough are set to fight controversial plans to charge motorists for using the town’s multi-storey car park.

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster, wants to charge drivers an hourly rate to park at the site which has been free for more than 30 years.

Market traders may organise a petition in an attempt to stop the proposal, which they believe will price shoppers out of town.
