Trinity Market early works agreement

Hull City Council has today published a decision record entering into a second early works agreement with Hull Esteem Consortium LEP Limited for the redevelopment on Trinity Indoor Market.

As the market is a listed building, the design and planning process is incredibly complex and therefore plans can take longer to be agreed and signed off. This agreement will ensure the work to the centre will remain on track whilst financial close is reached with the contractor.

Work has already started as food hall stallholders have moved into the mall to clear the area for a complete overhaul. Other works will include the conversion of the old Rumours nightclub into a restaurant space, upgrade of the existing toilets, installations of new floors, roof and lights and improved stalls and layouts.

These further early works will commence this week and include the strip out of the food hall and the installation of hoarding and roof walkways.

Food hall stallholders are expected to be back in the hall in the spring with the total project complete by October 2017.

Trinity Indoor Market on the move

Work will soon begin on the £1.6m refurbishment of Trinity Indoor Market with the Trinity House Lane entrance to close from this Saturday (15 October).

Existing stalls from the food hall have already moved to the mall area and users of the market are being encouraged to use the entrances at Lowgate and Hepworth’s Arcade for the duration of the project. New signage directing people to the alternative entrances is currently being installed around the market and arcade.

Market customers are also being offered the chance to win a hamper of Trinity Market goodies as a thank you for their support during the project. Customers currently shopping at the market are given a postcard which they simply present at the stall’s new locations to be automatically entered into a draw.

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.

“We have worked closely with traders to ensure they remain in the market throughout the project and I would like to thank them for their cooperation during this time.

“I am confident that this refurbishment will create a market the traders and residents of Hull can be proud of.”

The 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 have an enhanced food offering with a significant element of the development being a restaurant to partially occupy the building on North Church Side opposite Holy Trinity Church.

The 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.

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.

Funding secured for refurbishment of Trinity Market

Hull City Council is pleased to announce that a project to revitalise Hull’s Trinity Market will now go ahead thanks to a successful bid to the Coastal Communities Revival Fund.

On Friday 11 December Hull City Council was awarded £50,000 for the Trinity Market Revival, marking a step forward in plans to regenerate the Old Town whilst making the most of the area’s striking architecture.

Funding for the £3m Revival Fund received 222 bids, totalling £9m. With the funding three times oversubscribed, the Trinity Market refurbishment was recognised as a priority project to receive a slice of Coastal Communities Revival Fund.
