North Lincolnshire Council is inviting market traders and residents to a consultation event on Wednesday 20 September in Scunthorpe High Street from 9am to 2pm, to have their say on the exciting plans for Scunthorpe Market.
There will be a stall set up on the High Street near Cole Street for you to take a look at the plans and share your views.
This is part of the month-long consultation that started last week to seek views from people to inform the future direction, location and investment for Scunthorpe’s market.
Shoppers and traders are being asked to give their views on a variety of topics including their current usage of the market, what types of market they would like to see in the town, where they feel the best location for a market is and what is most important to them in a market service. These views will then be considered to determine a plan of investment for Scunthorpe market.
This all forms part of the council’s ambitious £60m plans to transform Scunthorpe town centre.
3D videos of what the future market provision could look like have been designed and published for consultees. Take a look at the vidoes:
If you are unable to make the consultation event on 20 September, you can have your say online by completing the survey online. The consultation runs until 4 October.
Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“We are really keen to hear residents’ views as we start to bring forward the plans for the transformation of Scunthorpe Market as part of our £60m regeneration plans for a modern town centre.
“Come along to the consultation event on 20 September in Scunthorpe town centre to take a look at the plans and tell us what you think. Your views will shape the future of Scunthorpe Market.
“It is important that markets are a focal point in our town centres and under the proposals, the market will be just that. By being in a more prominent location it will encourage more people to shop local.”
