Market will look much the same as it does now
City of York Council has presented designs for the refurbishment of Newgate market to market stall holders and will shortly be revealing prototype stalls.
The project is costing Council taxpayers £1.6 million
The Council claims that research conducted in autumn last year showed all those consulted agreed that the market is in need of ‘sprucing up’ and that the new designs should complement the distinctive York character.
All those consulted agreed that the south-eastern end of the market needed to become more vibrant and that music and entertainment and more food on offer would enhance the market atmosphere.
In addition, improved signage, promotion and information about the market was needed for traders and city centre users.
