MOVING stalls from South Shields Market Place to the centre of town will create a retail ‘feel-good factor’, it has been claimed.
Plans have been revealed to move traders into King Street and Barrington Street – on the square outside Lloyds Bank – while nearby Wouldhave House is demolished later this year.
The plan was met with a positive reaction when members of the South Tyneside Council’s jobs and enterprise select committee met yesterday.
Members spoke of a ‘double whammy’ effect, claiming existing town centre retailers could benefit from the presence of the market traders – and vice versa.
But enthusiasm for the scheme was only on the proviso that, once a new development is created on the Wouldhave site, the market traders would return.
The committee chairman, Coun Rob Dix, Labour representative for Harton, said: “We must put the market back in its rightful place at that time – and that is back on the square.”
