Don't miss this chance to have your say on the future of Birkenhead Market
There is still time for people to share their views on the initial design ideas for the proposed new Birkenhead Market.
The proposals being put forward would see the House of Fraser building demolished and the creation of a standalone market on that site, complete with with independent retail, food and beverage stalls and new accessible public spaces linked into St Werburgh’s Square and Oliver Street East.
The new market has been designed to recapture the historic spirit of the 1845 market, through the creation of a thriving hub of activity in the town centre. The vision is to deliver a standout sustainable development that supports established and aspiring local businesses and provides a new destination for shopping, leisure, culture and community events.
The current market will continue to be open for business as usual and will stay there and remain trading as normal until the new market is complete. One to one discussions with traders will take place alongside consultation with the public.
Consultation events have been taking place at BirkenEd’s Place in Grange Precinct but there is still time for people to have their say online, via www.wirralgrowthcompany.co.uk/market up until to 26th March.
Feedback on the emerging proposals will help to shape the planning application which is set to be submitted in early summer.
