Knutsfordians are being invited to a public consultation to view the plans for the town’s market hall building.
The consultation will take place on Tuesday 10th April between 2-4pm and 6-8pm at Knutsford Market Hall on Silk Mill Street.
Knutsford Town Council is working with local architects SiCa to demolish the existing Market Hall and re-build a new hall to secure the market’s future in future years.
Plans have now been developed and the council is keen to listen and take note of public opinion. The plans include provision for four, two-bedroom apartments above the market hall.
Sandra Curties, town centre manager and market manager said: “We know how loved the Market Hall traders are, but the current building is well past it’s sell by date. We need a Market Hall that does both the traders and the town justice.
“The public consultation is a way of gathering opinion and feedback and we welcome Knutsfordians and Market Hall customers alike to come along and have a look at the plans.”
Council staff and architects will be on hand during both sessions and the public consultation follows on from a previous trader consultation.
The consultation will include information on the financing of the project with Knutsford Town Council planning to borrow up to £1m to finance the works which will be repaid via the income from the apartments and market traders.
Knutsford Market Hall is open for business as usual every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8am to 4pm.
