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.
The transformation has been completed in stages with the remainder of work to be completed by Spring 2016.
Will the Market Place remain open?
The Market will continue to stay open whilst construction is ongoing. The Council will work closely with traders to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
