A MOVE to permanently close down the Fishing Village in East Honiara and relocate it will be at the centre of discussion today.
As part of the seeking solutions to the market Honiara City Council and a delegation from Fishing village will meet today to discuss the relocation of the market.
An appointed Council member of Honiara City Council (HCC) administration who asked not be named told the Solomon Star yesterday the meeting this morning is mainly to discuss and look at ways to relocate the Fishing village market elsewhere.
The proposed moved is being taken after past HCC administration failed to close or relocate the controversial market site.
“Past Council administration has failed to consider the relocation or closing down of Fishing village market despite the decision made by HCC to close down the market last year.”
The member said, under the new administration this market will have to be closed down.
“The current councillors will be tough this year to make sure this market must be closed down because it has disturbed the flow of traffic in that area every day.”
So the talks this morning will be to look at options to close down and relocate it, the councillor said.
HCC Deputy Lord Mayor will also attend the meeting to be held at the HCC chamber starting 9am.
