Stallholders at Seven Sisters market are being offered the chance to help shape the design of the new market hall being planned for the site.
Grainger plc and Haringey Council have appointed Quarterbridge Project Management to work with existing traders to design the new Market Hall and help with the temporary relocation whilst the Seven Sisters Regeneration project is underway.
Quarterbridge, the UK's leading consultant to the Markets industry, has been brought on board to ensure the new market's success.
It will consult with all existing stallholders to work up the layout and stall design, and will help current traders to move into a temporary location and retain customers and trade while the market is being revamped.
Jonathan Owen, Projects Director for Quarterbridge said: "The new Seven Sisters Market will have a tremendous advantage with the most prominent frontage in the development. We're confident we can design a new Market Hall and stalls that suit everyone's needs and improve sales turnover."
Haringey Council leader Claire Kober said: "We've said all along that we are committed to supporting current market traders, and the arrangement with Quarterbridge underlines this commitment. We look forward to seeing plans for the new Market Hall take shape."
David Walters, Development Director of Grainger, said: "Appointing Quarterbridge demonstrates our commitment to the future of Seven Sisters Market. We see a vibrant, thriving market as essential to the success of the whole Seven Sisters Regeneration. We are confident that Quarterbridge has the skills and experience to manage this complex process and ensure the Market continues to thrive during the temporary relocation."
