New food market in Bradford one step closer

Planning proposals for Bradford Council’s new food market were published today bringing the major Darley Street project one step closer to becoming a reality.

Dramatic new artist’s impressions accompany plans which feature a spacious modern market with dedicated underground servicing areas and a dynamic new public space for open air events and outdoors stalls.

The Council believes the new development would add to Bradford’s draw as a shopping and leisure destination and attract more people into the city.

It would also increase the visibility of Piccadilly which features a number of high quality Victorian buildings.

The application marks the beginning of a second phase of consultations on the project which began earlier this month with a series of drop-in sessions.

The authority is interested to find out people’s opinions on the plans and an online survey has been set up to capture local views.

Coun Alex Ross-Shaw, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, said: “This is a major step in realising this significant transformational project.

“The markets would help redefine Darley Street and the city centre, and showcase the fantastic Victorian buildings on Piccadilly by making them a lot more visible.”

“The project is part of a broad package of initiatives designed to boost investment, growth and employment across the Bradford district.”
