Time square development

Work is well underway - please keep up to date with roadworks for any possible disruptions.

When open in 2019 the development will include a new state-of-the-art, 13 screen, 2,500 seat multiplex cinema operated by Cineworld. The project will also see the development of several restaurants, a new market hall, new council offices, a new 1300 space multi-storey car park and a new civic square.

The new temporary market was opened on 2 September 2017 by the Lord Mayor and will be home for the market traders until work is completed on the second phase of development. The second phase will see the demolition of the current market hall and the build of the new permanent £10 million, 31,150 sq. ft. market market hall as well as the construction of contemporary new offices for the council.

At no time will the market close or cease to trade.
