Public drop in sessions for Kirkgate Market

People interested in having their say on the future of Kirkgate Market are invited to a number of drop in sessions in November.

There will be four sessions held at the Marriott Hotel, Boar Lane on Monday 12 November where people can listen to a short presentation on the market proposals and then have a chance to speak to council officers and the consultants on the project.

The events are open to everyone and will provide a face to face outlet for people to talk through the information and discuss anything they have questions about.

Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council executive member for development and the economy said:

“This is a good chance for people to find out more about the market proposals and ask any questions they may have.

“We are aware that we have put a large amount of information into the public domain, but are keen to hear peoples thoughts and questions they have on any of the information.

As part of the engagement process there is also a stall in the market (Unit 8 in the 1976 Hall) which is open Monday – Saturday and staffed at certain times.
