PLANS for a £1.5 million revamp of York’s Newgate Market have gone on show.

Architects enlisted by City of York Council are looking at how the market can be improved following claims it is looking tired and needs a higher profile.

Possible schemes include specialist shopping “zones”, canopies over stalls and a meeting area with seats, as well as improving the Jubbergate entrance to attract more customers from Parliament Street.

Architects Bauman Lyons will set up a stall at the market between 11am and 2pm today and tomorrow.
