Trinity Market refurbishment gets the go-ahead
The refurbishment of Hull’s historic Trinity Indoor Market will now go ahead following approval at today’s planning committee.
The £1.6m refit of the Grade 2 listed building and extension will upgrade and repair the main market spaces, stalls and the Market Place frontage with the intention of creating a busy, vibrant indoor market.
The main market spaces will include new and refurbished food stall providing more opportunities for eating. The building on North Church Side opposite Holy Trinity Church will be developed into a restaurant.
Garry Taylor, City Major Projects Manager said:
“Trinity Indoor Market has a very long history in Hull and it is only right that as part of the regeneration of the city centre, the market also receives a facelift.
“Now we have the go-ahead we can get this project underway and create the sort of market the traders and residents of Hull can be proud of.”
The £1.6m project is funded predominantly by the LEP with £1.35m funding coming from the Regional Growth fund and the top up of £250k from the council’s capital programme budget.
Work will begin in the summer of this year, and is programmed to be ready summer 2017. Every effort is being made to ensure that disruption for traders is kept to a minimum.
