Preston’s market hall should be demolished and replaced with a smaller building focussing on fresh food, a team of experts has said.
A report by Quarterbridge, commissioned by the city council, said the current hall was in “a poor state of repair”.
The council has already said it would demolish the 1970s market hall and car park due to the substantial costs of repairing and renovating the buildings.
Traders criticised the report saying it did not tell them anything new. Author of the report, Jonathan Owen, said the quality of the fresh food and the value for money was “exceptionally good”.
