Elland Market Re-Vamp In Progress

Building work has begun in Elland on a project that will result in a transformed market area and a new community hub.

Calderdale Council recently appointed contractor Eric Wright Civil Engineering to transform the look and feel of the town centre, and Code Building Solutions to upgrade the Cartwheel Club.

Roof works and repointing have started at the Cartwheel Club, survey works are ongoing and the inside of the building has been stripped out to make way for new facilities in a complete refurbishment. The next steps will be to build a side extension and an accessible lift and to fit out the roof and the new building interior.

The town’s Friday outdoor market is temporarily moving from Market Square, and will operate just around the corner in the Upper Timber Street car park for around three months.

Once the works are complete, traders will move back to the newly revamped Market Square, which will have a new garden area and seating for people to relax and socialise; new local stone flags and anchor points for the market stalls; and a more flexible layout will make it easier for people to trade and shop.

Elizabeth Street will become one-way, improving safety for market visitors and providing more space for traders to transport their goods.

Lower Timber Street car park will be closed throughout the town centre improvement works to enable construction vehicles and equipment to be stored safely.
