Chelmsford Market renovation works to commence next week

12/3/19 About 1 minute
Works to refurbish the popular Chelmsford Market are set to begin week commencing 11 March, with all phases of works expected to be completed by early July 2019.

Once the works are complete it will mean a vibrant new feel to the bustling attraction at the heart to the city centre which is home to over 50 independent businesses.

The planned comprehensive refurbishment and redecoration programme will uplift the external and internal appearance of the market and create a more modern trading environment for the market's traders.

The market will continue to stay open and will be business as usual throughout the refurbishment period, so visitors can still browse a wide range of stalls and buy their favourite local goods.

The works will be carried out in four phases over a four-month period and the majority of traders will still continue to trade in their usual area or an alternative area such as the Market Square, until the works in their usual trading section are complete.

Councillor Malcolm Sismey, cabinet member responsible for Chelmsford Market said: "The Market has not had a large-scale refurbishment for many years and is a popular attraction in the city centre, so the refurbishment works are necessary investment to achieve a vibrant and long-term sustainable market.

"We want to reassure traders and visitors that we are keeping disruption to a minimum and would like to thank the traders for their patience and understanding whilst the works are being carried out."
