Cheshire East Council is pleased to announce a new operator has been secured to manage Crewe markets for the next five years, including the remodelled Crewe Market Hall, ahead of its anticipated opening next year.
Opening five days a week, the refurbished Market Hall will be brimming with high-quality, fresh food and independent eateries and retailers, while also featuring pop-up stalls and events.
There will be a regular programme of activities and demonstrations and flexibility for the building to be opened up during the evening for events, entertainment and other themed activities.
Cllr Mannion added: “Crewe is a town that’s very much growing and we are committed to its regeneration.
“We are delighted to have an operator that shares our vision for revitalising Crewe’s markets and look forward to the role they will play in the town centre’s wider regeneration.”
Philip Cox, chief executive of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, said, “Crewe is an important priority for us and the subject of significant on-going investment. We are delighted to see real progress being made on the ground, which is good news for residents and the business community.”
The Market Hall redevelopment project is part of the Crewe town centre regeneration programme, which is supported by £10m in funding from the Government’s Local Growth Fund through Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership.
