The market will be moved to St Werburghs Square whilst the town centre is redeveloped. Google Maps is showing it where Game and H Samuel jewellers are, and where St Werburghs Church is, so I'm confused on the exact location.
Anyway, how can you fit a market in either of these places? And what would happen to the meat and fish market?

I haven't been down that way for some time; perhaps vacant units can house the meat and fish sections, and some others too? You could fit some market stalls in around the trees, which might actually look rather good, but not loads.

Agreed it would look good with stalls around the trees but it would be inconvenient for the stall holders to load up everyday.

Hmm... maybe the idea hasn't been thought through thoroughly enough? (Why would I not be surprised by that?)

I'm just about old enough to remember the last temporary market, inside the old Asda building.

The traders are certainly not happy about it and many may just walk away.
I know a lot of people say the market is dead, but if these proposals go ahead without the majority in favour of it, we will see the market slowly disappear.
And if that happens, why build a new market for them whilst this temporary one dies a slow death?
