West Bromwich’s struggling indoor market could be redeveloped under plans to bring ‘long-term sustainability’ to the site.
The number of traders has dwindled in recent years and council bosses are now considering a programme of investment to save the flagging market.
Concerns over the future of the market have been growing amid claims from traders it will struggle to survive without support from the council, which agreed a 25 per cent rent cut last year.
A report has now revealed council bosses are drawing plans for the redevelopment of the market. It is likely chiefs will want to be confident changes could help the market flourish before agreeing to invest money into it. The 25 per cent rate discount is set to be extended until September while plans for the future of the market are discussed.
