A NEW management board is set to be appointed to oversee a major multi-million pound refurbishment of Kirkgate market.
Leeds City Council is forging ahead with its plans to inject the historic market with a promised £12.3m makeover.
A new report to be presented to the authority’s cabinet next week lays out options for the format of a new steering committee, which would be a “custodian” of the market – but would still be ultimately controlled by the council.
Meanwhile, a separate council report confirms Ove Arup and partners have been appointed to provide a planning service for the project.
The developments come after campaigners recently confronted council decision-makers over claims of a lack of progress on the promised “kiss of life” to secure the market’s future in the wake of approval for the Victoria Gate development.
