Give your views on Kirkgate market

Leeds City Council has launched a consultation to get the views of the city on how to improve Kirkgate market.

The consultation – ‘Towards a Strategy for Kirkgate Market’ has been put in place to give the public and traders the chance to voice their views on what needs to be done at Kirkgate to make it one of the best markets in the UK.

Since the mid- 1990s, Leeds City Council says it has spent approximately £12m on investment and the general maintenance of Kirkgate Market, but it has become clear that a strategy is needed, and the council are looking to the public and traders for their influence into this.

The consultation will look to find out if the council is best placed to manage a business in the retail sector, and should all or some of the market profits be ring fenced and reinvested back into the market amongst other key ideas. The consultation will run until 7th February 2011.
