Important Announcement – Louth Market Auctioneers
For Louth Livestock Market, the last 18 months have been dramatic. The East Lindsey District Council served a Notice to Quit and organised a public consultation as to the future of the Market and its site. The result demonstrated overwhelmingly that the public wished Louth Livestock Market to be retained. On 11th October 2017, the Councillors unanimously voted for the facility to continue on the present site with essential repairs being undertaken and a new lease being granted to Louth Market Auctioneers.
Since last October, prolonged discussions have been ongoing with Councillors, officers of the Council and local businesses. It is hoped that the new and exciting projects for which planning permission is sought, will shortly come to fruition and will enhance the use of the site and the facilities. The Council is intending to re-roof the main building and undertake some further refurbishment work in early January 2019.
The market is currently operated by a partnership of David and Simon Williams and Russell Jeanes of Masons and Paul Robinson and James Boulton of Willsons. With effect from 31st December 2018, Willsons have decided to withdraw from the partnership of Louth Market Auctioneers allowing the remaining firm of Masons, which is based in Louth, to fully develop the alternative uses as well as expand and improve the core Livestock Auctioneering business.
Masons have arranged with Melton Mowbray Market for Tom Greenow to run the sheep section for them at Louth, providing expertise and all-important continuity from the New Year, with the potential for greater collaboration in the future.
Paul, James and their staff will give Masons & Tom every assistance to ensure a smooth transition to allow these new and exciting changes to be implemented, thus helping to secure the long- term future of Louth Livestock Market.
