York Traders Invited To Join Market Project
10:55am 12th December 2012
Having committed £1.6 million from its Economic Infrastructure Fund to invest into Newgate market, City of York Council says it is inviting market traders to get more deeply involved in the project to ensure its success.
Councillor Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “Following a consultation with shoppers and traders, we heard a wide range of views and opinions on how the investment will, for example, improve market services, its appearance, layout and visibility from surrounding streets, and how it will make the most of the available space.
“There’s general support for better signposting for city centre shoppers to find the market, providing high quality lock-up units, better lighting and improving paving and drainage.
“To ensure the council and traders work closely together and support our ambition to create jobs and grow the economy whilst enhancing the city centre, the council is inviting a traders’ group to represent the 120 market traders we welcome to the city, and to work with the project group.”
