PEOPLE will be asked to give their views tonight on kiosks and pop-up stalls like this one, which could be installed in York’s Newgate Market as part of a £1.5 million revamp.
City of York Council is holding the latest in a series of consultation events at 5, Silver Street, from 5.30pm to 7pm, so people can contribute their ideas and priorities to help architects Bauman Lyons come up with a vision of how the market could look and operate in the future.
Cabinet member Coun Sonja Crisp said some kiosk styles could allow improved security with overnight storage options, which would save traders time.
She said: “Some, especially those with refrigeration, could encourage an even greater variety of food traders at Newgate. Other stall styles could be moveable, which could allow smaller ‘pop-up’ markets in the city centre and, being much less expensive than renting a shop, they could help support entrepreneurs kick-start their businesses in the heart of the city.”
A council spokeswoman said that at the design workshop, participants would be invited to contribute their ideas and priorities to help the architects understand what flexible selling space could work for traders.
