Formal Norwich Market consultation launched

Published on Monday, 15th February 2016

‚ÄčA formal consultation has been launched asking for views on Norwich City Council's new 10-year strategy for the rejuvenation of Norwich Market.

The strategy, which is currently in draft, has been written following the public survey ‘Tell us what you think of Norwich Market’, which was run for just over two months last summer.

Cllr Paul Kendrick, cabinet member for Norwich Market, said: “At each stage in this process we have really wanted the traders and the wider public to be involved and to give us their views.
“Nearly 1,000 people responded to last year’s survey, which was fantastic, and we separately consulted businesses, traders and other groups to make sure that as far as possible we reflected everyone’s voice in the shaping of our strategy.
“Now this formal consultation seeks to make sure that our strategy is right before it is formally adopted.”

The draft strategy lays out 12 themes of work, each with its own objectives, strategic outcomes and key actions, which Norwich City Council aims to carry forward between now and 2026.

The consultation is split into two sections with one set of questions for market traders and the other for businesses, organisations and members of the public.

The views and data gathered will be used to help us finalise the 10-year strategy and start the work on the ground.
 
 The eight-week consultation is open until Thursday 31 March. It is available online at www.norwich.gov.uk/consultations. Paper copies are available by contacting the market management team by email on marketservices@norwich.gov.uk or calling 01603 213 537/8.
