Wakefeild Express By Don Mort
Almost 1,600 people have signed a petition against plans to demolish Wakefield Market to make way for a cinema development.
The petition was handed to Denise Jeffery, Wakefield Council’s cabinet member for economic growth, before a meeting of the council’s cabinet this morning.
Traders collected 1,576 signatures after being told a week ago of a proposal by Sovereign Land, one of the owners of the Trinity Walk shopping centre, to turn the site into a multi-screen cinema with restaurant and cafe units.
A report to the meeting recommended that the council went ahead with negotiations for the closure, sale, demolition and redevelopment of the market, which opened in 2008.
