TODAY marks 50 years since the closure of Parliament Street’s weekly market and traders at neighbouring Newgate Market have mixed responses to the council’s planned renovation of their current home.
Public consultation on the plans, which include sprucing up Newgate Market and improving promotion, ended yesterday.
Stall owners spoken separately to by The Press said that a revamp was needed but increasing footfall was more important.
Steve Franks, a trader for eight years, said advertising was essential: “There should be signs to get people to come in.”
Gordon David, who has worked on the market for 37 years, said: “Generally, what the traders want is smarter advertising to draw more people in.”
