Knutsford to make plans for new £1m Market Hall public

Early sketch of the new market hall planned for Knutsford

Town shoppers are being consulted on plans for a new market hall in Knutsford.

The current market hall on Silk Mill Street is earmarked for demolition to make way for a new £1m Market Hall with plans for the project about to go on show in the soon-to-be-no-more building.

The market hall is owned and operated by Knutsford Town Council who have announced they are working with local architects SiCa to demolish the current Market Hall and build a new one in what they say will secure the market’s future in the 21st century.

Plans include the market hall with four two-bedroom apartments above it.

Sandra Curties, town centre and market manager said: “We know how loved the Market Hall traders are, but the current building is well past its 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.”

The plans will be on display at the market hall between 2pm and 4pm and 6pm to 8pm on Tuesday April 10th 2018.

Town 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 the town council planning to borrow up to £1 million to finance the works, which will be repaid from the income from the apartments and market traders.

Knutsford Market Hall, Silk Mill St, Knutsford WA16 6DF
