*UPDATED BELOW* BURTON’S historic market units are being prepared for demolition.
The market stalls, which are more than 80 years old, have been fenced off to be bulldozed as part of East Staffordshire Borough Council’s plans to revitalise Burton’s Market Hall.
Plans for the bulldozers were approved last year. The application forms part of the council’s controversial plans to revamp the hall by creating pop-up stalls and creating a first floor cafe area, which means removing some units altogether to make way for lifts and stairs.
The hall will be then available for night time entertainment such as comedy clubs and band nights.
