Investment proposals for Kirkgate Market in Leeds are to be scrutinised by the city council’s executive board this week. Funds totalling £500,000 have been earmarked to fund an investigation into the market’s future.
Members will be asked to look at a feasibility study for a revamp of the market on Friday (10 February 2012). Suggested work includes a modern extension to replace the 1976, 1981 and George Street shops and further refurbishment of the 1904 and 1875 halls while maintaining the outdoor market next to the indoor market.
