No plans to close Nantwich Market Hall


Cheshire East Council has moved to assure market traders and shoppers in Nantwich that there are no plans to close the town’s market hall.

Concerns were raised that the Churchyardside market would close should Nantwich Town Council decide it cannot or does not want to manage local services such as the market hall, Civic Hall, allotments or play areas, for example.

But market managers say there are no plans to shut its doors. Cheshire East has always maintained that it will review other options if transfer to more local control cannot be achieved.

Phil Sherratt, head of environmental services at Cheshire East, said: “Nantwich Market is a major asset to the town and it remains open for business. It is a profitable market and it continues to be popular with shoppers and traders alike.

“Cheshire East Council is committed to growing and developing sustainable market towns and to giving people more choice and control over services and resources.”

Negotiations are ongoing to identify which services and functions could be run by towns and parishes across Cheshire East in an effective and responsive manner, which is in tune with local residents’ needs. Any transfer of services is planned for April 2012.
