Council chiefs have unveiled draft plans for a £12.3m revamp of Leeds Kirkgate Market – just days after traders complained about a lack of progress on the promised ‘kiss of life’.
The plans include combining the fish, game and butchery areas to create a fresh food zone, new pedestrian routes, a central events space and a section off George Street that will open into the evening.
David Gardner, from scheme designers IBI Taylor Young architects, explained the 24 to 30-month construction will be phased to limit disruption.
Work will first start on the 1976 Hall, where all fixed units will be removed to create a covered daily market and interactive events space that could host everything from demonstrations to shows for 300 people.
