The transformation of the historic Halifax Borough Market has moved a step closer, after the multi-million-pound revitalisation project reached significant milestones.
Calderdale Council is investing nearly £4.5 million into a thriving future for the market hall as a focal point for shopping, business and leisure in Halifax, after it successfully secured £11.7 million from the Government’s Future High Streets Fund for improvements across the town centre.
Work on the Grade II* listed Borough Market, which opened in 1896, will include:
- Restoration of the historic façade and repairs to the beautiful roof, which is an important heritage feature.
- Improved entrances and routes inside the market to make it easier to explore and to help people enjoy the market’s many features and stalls, and to better link the top and bottom ends of the town centre.
- Improved areas for events outside of market trading hours, including pop-up units and refurbished toilet facilities.
