City Traders chairman Graeme Burrows said a meeting with council regarding differential rates on Monday yielded “no joy” for traders.

He said the organisation would continue to negotiate with council and hoped to secure a special levy in the budget.

“But I don’t think we’re going to have much luck,” Mr Burrows said.

“We’re very disappointed because there was no prior warning; this differential rate change was just thrown at us.

“We intend to talk to our traders and then come back to council.”

Traders manager Tess Lane said that there was “no chance” of securing­ the levy in the next 12 months.
