CHESTERFIELD Borough Council (CBC) and Staveley Town Council have agreed on a management plan that should secure the continuation of Staveley Market for the next five years.
Staveley Town Council took over the running of the market from CBC three years ago with a financial subsidy from the borough Council. CBC has agreed to continue the subsidy for the next five years and a new weekly market will begin on Tuesday 3rd of April, as well as the normal market days of Friday and Saturday.
Councillor John Williams, Leader of Staveley Town Council said: “Staveley Market provides good value for money to local residents and is used as a social place for the community. We have a number of ideas to help grow the market so having the backing of the borough Council will help us realise those ambitions.”
Councillor Nick Stringer, Executive Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism at Chesterfield Borough Council said: “Staveley Market has so much potential, but investment is required to keep it attractive to shoppers with huge supermarkets just around the corner. This new deal will ensure that Staveley Market remains open for years to come and shows our continuous support for out of town centre locations.”
