But traders say there’s no going back in ‘temporary’ plan.
LIVERPOOL city planners are recommending the go-ahead for the relocation of Great Homer Street Market to a makeshift home on an industrial site in Dryden Street.
The proposal is for what is described a temporary accommodation for the market to enable the multi-million pound supermarket and retail scheme, Project Jennifer, to proceed in Great Homer Street.
However, the word “temporary” is open to debate in the controversial plan.
Many of the market traders are convinced they are being shunted out of Great Homer Street for good, after nearly 200 years, to make way for a development to be occupied by the big multiples.
In the original scheme for Great Homer Street, the market was earmarked as a centrepiece. But the scheme has been radically altered to effectively move the market to the edge of the development.
The application, to go before the planning committee on Tuesday, proposes to use land on Dryden Street, down the road, as a temporary location for the Great Homer Street Market for up to four years.
