A decision over a possible increase in fees for stallholders at Lincoln Christmas Market has been delayed. The proposals include doubling some surcharges and increasing rents for traders in busy areas in order to cut the subsidy of the event from the council.

The executive of the City of Lincoln discussed the plans on Monday evening, but decided the final decision will be made by the full council. The matter will now be dealt with on Tuesday 26 June.

Tim Jones, who runs Lincolnshire Poacher Cheeses, says he is worried that the recommended increase in charges could be unfair.
