Kiosks idea for York’s Newgate Market

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.

A fine example of contemporary design that's bound to meld seamlessly with the noble architectural heritage of our beautiful city.

Any chance of setting these stalls up by the roadside, anywhere around Clifton Moor / Bootham / Water lane / Leeman road area? Would be nice to have a snack whilst sat in traffic, mobile newsagent would be good as well.

What a stupid idea!
Of course, stupid ideas always materialise in York centre.
Why not make Station Rise into a centre for hot-dog stands?

Kiosks are stands, like hot dog stands.

£1.5 MILLION!! ONE POINT FIVE MILLION!!! Are you kidding me? I know Newgate market needs a revamp BUT from which dark place has the council suddenly pulled this sort of money out from? Didn't I read recently of council tax rises coming to North Yorkshire? Or is this another 'Kings' Square' situation? Half a million to repave somewhere a space smaller than half the domestic gardens in York.

As defined in the English dictionary: Stall – small area selling or dispensing goods.
Kiosk – small roofed street booth.
Stand – that’s what I do everyday, stand still in unnecessary traffic.
Just a bit of tongue in cheek humor Idris Gawr , lighten up!

Where on earth have the press got this picture from? that isn't even York! Surely a picture of the 'trial kiosk' or whatever it is they've supposedly put in the market would have been more suitable than a picture of as hot dog stand in possibly wakefield or pontefract....

come on everyone.... smaller more flexible space may help more take advantage of the market and make it more interesting
Perhaps a central eating area with stall around it would provide a focus for the market with something to attract tourists as well as locals
Stature of Richard ? or even a cool tree to sit under. there is nothing to hold you there once in it. How about archaeology under glass as it must be there so people can go so it like roman baths [or even fake roman mosaic pavement under glass. Its needs a draw
they need ideas to make the market a draw for more people and not a warren of stalls as it is now although I quite like it as it is now!! so send them in as the architects read these blogs
however how it will cost £1.5 million is beyond me even if they roofed it over!!

CYC are not spending a penny its a loan which has to be paid back in 5 years, Sonja Crisp should be sacked by the way she is running the market and the refurb that nobody wants but CYC. It will be the next council who will have to sort this mess out. The market should be returned back to were it belongs. When in street on a Monday residents love it and ask why it not out all the time.
