Arnold: Market to spend another year in Eagle Square

The relocated Arnold Market is likely to stay in Eagle Square for at least another year following an extension, council documents show.

After 50 years of stalls being in the town centre, traders were moved in 2022 while the AMP development was built.

Gedling Borough Councillors are now being asked to approve plans for the market to stay at Eagle Square for another 12 months.

Over the next 12 months the Council will “undertake a full review of the permanent location of the market within Arnold town centre, in consultation with market traders and residents”, documents stated.

The council said neighbouring properties were consulted in February 2024 and no written responses were received.

The extension will be discussed at the council’s planning committee on March 28.

The council says keeping the market in Eagle Square will “enhance
the retail and community experience and the vitality and viability of Arnold Town Centre”.

Arnold Market is made up of 12 stalls trading on Tuesdays, Fridays and
Saturdays selling products including fruit and veg, fashion and butchery.

The AMP development is home to a wine-tasting experience outlet, a cat and dog accessory and treats store, a cake shop and a delicatessen – as well as the relocated Post Office.

Council documents stated: “The principle of the development is supported in that it will result in retention of a market facility in Arnold Town Centre whilst a full review is undertaken. The proposals will enhance the character of the area as well as enhance the vitality and viability of Arnold Primary and Secondary Shopping Area.”
