8:12am Thursday 20th December 2012 in Business news
A GROUP of farmers has put forward plans to build a replacement livestock market for a North Yorkshire town.
Four farmers – led by Ryedale councillor David Cussons – put forward ideas to an 80-strong group of farmers in the Ryedale area about progress made on establishing a new market to replace the existing long-established complex in Malton’s town centre , on which the lease is due to expire next year.
Coun Cussons said the group was exploring the possibility of setting up a co-operative of farmers who would run the market.
A site near Eden Camp has been earmarked for the multi-million pound development.
