Swansea Market Secures £439,000 Improvement Project
May 13, 2020
Swansea’s award-winning indoor market is set for major improvements. These include; the addition of public toilets, a multi-purpose communal area for eating and meeting with friends, free public Wi-Fi, new interactive LED signs and improved entrances.
Work is due to start this summer, following Government social distancing guidelines.
Robert Francis-Davies, the council’s cabinet member for investment, regeneration and tourism, said: “I’m glad that we can announce this important work.
“We have worked closely with market traders and listened to customers to identify and prioritise the significant improvements that will ensure Swansea Market retains and develops its identity as the heart of the city centre.
“The improvements focus on strengthening the market’s overall offer to the public and traders. Our plan will improve its attractiveness as a destination and further raise its profile as a key shopping attraction and city centre landmark.
“Whilst it is recognised that the effects of the pandemic will last for some time, the council remains steadfast in its support for local businesses and the continued development of Swansea as a world class destination.”
The £439,000 improvement project is part-funded by the Welsh Government’s Transforming Towns programme and the council.
Although Swansea Market is still closed to the public, there are a number of traders offering delivery services of meat, groceries, gifts and hot meals. Click here to see our full list with contact details and more information.
