Plans to give a £750,000 facelift to Newport’s Victorian indoor market have been given the go-ahead by the council.
The city’s planners backed the proposals to boost the High Street with a “vibrant and inviting” new market frontage and the creation of a food quarter.
A report found footfall in the original part of the Grade II listed building has declined over the recent years.
The proposals will now be considered by the Welsh government.
The redevelopment, part of a wider £2.6m plan by the council and regeneration firm Newport Unlimited to attract more people into the city centre, was first revealed in June last year.
At the time Ed Townsend, the council’s deputy leader, said the indoor market was “a valued feature of the city centre”.
