    Looks like stalls from the butchers/butter market are to move into the Queen’s square vacant shops this week. I believe there will be 9 stalls in the old HUb where Iceland used to be.



    There were around 53 stalls in the old Peoples Market prior to it being closed for the Ty Pawb project, of which around a third were let. When it came back on stream, the available stalls had been reduced to around 20. This made sense as traders are a dying breed.

    Now the Butchers Market has around 34 stalls of which around 12 are currently let. Under the refurbishment, the cafe and the one remaining butcher will remain trading in the market whilst the refurbishment is in process. The other approx 10 stalls will move to Queens Square. I have been told that 4 of those 10 will not be returning when the market comes back on stream. The plan for the new Butchers Market is to retain around 30 stalls. Where are new tenants coming from to fill these stalls?

    Why spend 2/3 million on a project that could turn out to be not fit for purpose.

    There have been other suggestions put forward as to the future plans for the markets, but the Council’s minds seem to be made up.
