Council agrees £2m investment for St John’s Market

Liverpool City Council have agreed a multi-million pound investment into the regeneration of long-standing city centre shopping destination St John’s Market after Mayor Joe Anderson says it has become “lacklustre to say the least”.

The 161-stall market, which houses retail stores and shop to  fast food chains and cafes has been at the heart of Liverpool city centre for decades and the council have now agreed £2m worth of funding to redevelop the establishment through its capital programme.

Plans include a central atrium space, new seating areas, additional stalls and cafes as well as more public toilets.

Work is expected to commence with the upper floor and on the entrance via Elliot Street before Christmas, with the entire scheme expected to be completed by April 2015. Trading will continue whilst the project is underway.
