Councillor Lewis Anwers Our Questions: 8
- To date we have not seen a business/economic case for the proposed “Covered daily Market” that will replace existing businesses by an uncertain demand of “pop up” stalls.
Councillor Lewis replied:
What cannot be disputed is that the current situation in the 1976 hall is not sustainable and change is needed. The tenants agree. A covered daily market allows for a constantly changing offer which can add interest to the market, especially with the addition of the events space, creating a ‘destination’ which draws visitors through the market thus creating footfall to existing businesses.
Does the current outdoor market not create a constantly changing offer? Let us know in the comments below.
