And from Tuesday the council will be looking for feedback on the options it’s come up with about what the market might look like in the future and how it could be run.
“This next stage is an important stage in understanding what people across the city, traders and stakeholders feel are the elements that we should prioritise and move forward with,” says an invite to Monday’s briefing from the council’s communications team.
“We will also be presenting the management options that we are looking into and asking for comment,” it adds.
The invite says the council’s consultants, the NPS group (Norfolk Property Services), have gathered together all the information from the consultation that took place earlier this year on the market’s future and have fed it into the next stage of the project, the feasibility study.
“We have identified a number of elements which we will be asking for feedback on from Tuesday 14th December,” it said.
No further detail was given of what those “elements” might be or what “management options” are being considered.
“The information we receive will form the basis for a report we will take to the council’s executive board in early 2013,” the invite added.
A notice on the council’s markets website says the “feasibility information” will be available to the public from Tuesday at the market itself and at libraries and “one stop shops” (click on panel above for details of where in the market)
“Traders and markets staff will be given advance briefings on Monday 15 October,” the notice says.
