Our initial plans to develop a market in the former Marks & Spencer store have now been expanded to include additional properties that will be demolished to create a major new public space supporting the development of our city centre markets.
Our design team are busily working initially on the plans for our new food market and if you want to see a computer model of the initial concept, please click here.
The vacant Marks & Spencer building is to be demolished to make way for a modern market that will focus on the sale of fresh food, hot foods and food related sales.
Our aim is to make the food market a celebration of the best independent foods in the city, district and region.
Our exciting plans for the city markets have been approved by the Council. The plans will be available to view online and at our stakeholder consultation events taking place at the end of October. Further details will be announced shortly.
