Victoria Centre statement on indoor market uncertainty

Nottingham City Council is expected to recommend the closure of Victoria Centre Market, but a final decision hasn’t been made more than 60 weeks after the plans were made public.

 

A spokesperson for Victoria Centre said:

“The market is run and operated by Nottingham City Council and they have been – and remain – fully responsible for all decisions regarding its future.

“Following extensive talks with the Council, and following the outcome of the public consultation, an agreement had been reached with them for an early surrender of their lease, with plans put in place to support and offer certainty to those stall holders wishing to remain in the centre.

“We have recently been informed by the Council that the early lease surrender cannot be progressed at this time, meaning that the market will remain open and will continue to trade at least until the end of April.

“We recognise that the Council’s decision places stallholders in a challenging and uncertain position and are fully sympathetic to that.

“We are hoping to continue an open dialogue with Nottingham City Council and have asked them to clarify their long-term position regarding the continued operation of the market and the financial investment that it requires from them.”
