Traders confirmed for second phase of Great Yarmouth market place redevelopment
Great Yarmouth Borough Council has announced that all the units within phase two of the Market Place development have now been provisionally leased. All stalls have been well insulated to regulate temperature and the light fittings are low-energy LED lights, adding to the market's energy efficiency.
All the remaining traders are moving to the new Market in a phased process over the coming months along with some new traders. These includes stalls selling fruit and vegetables, Great Yarmouth's famous market chips, rotisserie chicken, Indian street food, Thai street food, Turkish food, bath bombs and soaps, telephone accessories and clothing.
Many traders moved into the first section of the new, more spacious and accessible six-day market, that replaced the tired 30-year-old canopy. The first phase of the new market has 15 stalls which are all let. The second phase will house a further 12 stalls, with space at the front for pop-up traders and room for a covered seating area.
In a joint statement, Great Yarmouth Borough Council leader Carl Smith and Labour group leader Trevor Wainwright said: "We know it has been tough for some traders with the ongoing construction of the new market buildings but we are extremely excited to see the final result. The six-day market is an important part of life in the borough and we will continue to do everything we can to support it."
