Reply To: Fish market plans
Read somewhere that the Corp (now City Council, but they can’t fool us) intends to develop the fruit markets into a retail centre. In short, having spent a ton of money on a stunning refurbishment of the markets building, they’re damned if they’re going to waste it on a bunch of wholesalers trying to get by.
I think they have a Covent Garden in mind – an example of how not to if you ask me.
I think that this is the coolest part of town, with plenty of mix and mingle, and to change it to a tourist ghetto crawling with buskers and jugglers a la Temple Bar would be a pity.
Is this true, and if so, any views?
