£2 million St John’s Market plan to move a step closer
Plans for a £2 million refurbishment of St John’s Market in Liverpool city centre are set to move a step closer.
A report to the council’s Cabinet on Friday 4 July is recommending that Graham Construction – who are also carrying out improvements in the shopping centre – be appointed to carry out the modernisation programme.
The work is urgently required to tackle a decline in footfall at the 161 stall facility, and follows recent improvements to improve the roof and lighting.
The proposals, funded through the council’s capital programme, will see a modernised entrance on Elliot Street, with the approach to the market being opened up and improved signage making the market more visible.
