Market relocation during works

During the Market Place regeneration works, the March Market will temporarily relocate to City Road Car Park.

From Wednesday 11 January 2023, your market traders will be at City Road Car Park every market day on Wednesdays and Saturdays for the duration of the works (expected to take up to 12 weeks, weather dependent).

A section of City Road Car Park will be closed to public vehicles from Sunday 8 January for the duration of the works, to facilitate the temporary relocation of the Market.

The section of car park will remain closed for the duration as advance car park closure signs and coned off areas asking drivers not to park on certain days can often be ignored, with parked cars preventing market traders from being able to set-up.

38 of the 220 car parking spaces at City Road Car and Lorry Park will be temporarily used for the Market, leaving 182 spaces still available at the site. There are also other free public car parks in the town. View a  map of public car parks in March. (PDF) [2MB]

City Road Car Park is the most viable location to relocate the Market, and was chosen following consultation with market traders.
