What is going to happen to the market?
The second section of the Market Place has been completed as part of the South Shields 365 project. The Market Place now features a new canopy roof around the perimeter of the trading area, designed as a partial covering protecting stalls or shoppers in poor weather conditions.
Landscaping and pavement improvements have been made to the surrounding areas with the addition of tree-lined avenues.
This work was completed in October 2016.
