Cornhill market traders face changes in Dorchester
MARKET traders in Dorchester's South Street face an earlier start and a hike in their licence fee.
The changes are among the measures being considered by West Dorset District Council's Dorchester Markets Informal Panel when it meets on Wednesday, 23rd January.
Members will consider a report that also recommends permitting stalls that sell only tangible goods, putting a stop to those run by companies such as driving schools, utilities or television services.
The report recommends that traders in South Street, including those operating at Cornhill, should unload and remove vehicles by 8.45am instead of the current 10am in order to clear the street for pedestrians.

And it proposes raising the annual licence fee from £5 to £10. Other regulations remain unchanged.
It acknowledges an improvement in the working relationship with traders, who raised objections last autumn when the panel proposed ending the Cornhill market.
The panel is also looking at other locations for occasional markets including the town walks.
