Having committed £1.6 million from its Economic Infrastructure Fund to invest into Newgate market, City of York Council is inviting market traders to get more deeply involved in the project to ensure its success.

Coun Sonja Crisp said: “To ensure the council and traders work closely together and support our ambition to create jobs and grow the economy while enhancing the city centre, the council is inviting a traders’ group to represent the 120 market traders we welcome to the city, and to work with the project group.”
