Councillors Back ‘Aspirational’ Proposals to Revamp Wrexham Markets


Councillors have unanimously backed an ‘aspirational’ report which proposes to revamp and modernise two of Wrexham’s historic indoor markets.

In a meeting presented to the Employment, Investment and Business Scrutiny Committee, councillors praised the report which will develop a five year strategy for both the General Market and Butchers Market.

Yesterday’s decision followed on from last month’s Scrutiny Committee, which saw councillors unanimously back proposals to keep the markets under the management of Wrexham Council, rather than outsourcing them.

The meeting yesterday focused on a ‘Strategic Asset Management Plan for Wrexham’s Town Centre Markets and Shops’ – outlining a number of priorities and plans for the facilities over the course of the next five years.
