For too long our town’s market has been neglected. Doncaster deserves a market fit for the future, we cannot hold on dogmatically to the market of the past. We’ll put together a 20 year plan to build our market back to the shopping destination that it used to be.
We’ll dramatically change the market by creating a market plan that integrates traditional market stalls with food outlets, live entertainment and new retail space. We’ll also make it easier to get quickly in and out of the market for people to nip in to shop for less than 1 hour. Part of the restructuring of the market place will be a reduction in the number of hawkers licences available and a commitment to hold any festive fayres in front of the corn exchange to draw visitors into the heart of the market.
