Council bosses yesterday unveiled proposals to create a “District Centre” in the area of Freeman Street between Nelson Street and Hainton Square.
This will include the creation of a new public square next to Freeman Street Market, a revamp of the existing retail units and improvements to Duncombe Street car park.
In addition to the council’s proposals, the Enrolled Freemen of Grimsby announced plans to upgrade the front of Freeman Street Market, allowing traders to operate on non-market days, and to create 15,000 sq feet of office space for the creative industries.
