AMBITIOUS plans to revive Surrey Street market, which could involve its operation being taken over by expert private managers, have been published this week.
Breathing new life into the flagging market is a key element of the overall business plan produced by the Old Town Portas Pilot Town Team, intended to boost the regeneration of the historic quarter of the town centre.
The team has been given £100,000, under the pilot scheme being run by TV retail guru Mary Portas.
In the heyday of the market, 20 years ago, prospective traders could expect to wait ten years to get a prime spot in Surrey Street.
