Refinancing proposals for Sheffield market ‘on hold’

Have your say

The idea of refinancing Sheffield’s Moor Market has been put ‘on hold’, a council chief has said.

The move was suggested earlier this month when footfall figures revealed 60,000 customers a day were visiting the market rather than the 100,000 that was expected.

Sheffield Council was also reviewing the possibility of changing opening hours.

Coun Leigh Bramall, cabinet member for business, said: “The possibility of the council refinancing the market has been reported, but we have put this on hold for now while we explore other options.”

Now the council is asking traders and the public for their views on trading hours at the market.
