Chris Smith, from Friends of Barnet Market, has good news to report about Barnet market. The two planning applications submitted by William Pears Group, the new owners of Barnet Market, have been approved.
This was confirmed to Chris by two senior LBB planning officers.
This means that Barnet Market will be completely renewed.
The plans mean there will be site improvements and enable it to be used as a car park on non-market days. The market site will be resurfaced, the hoardings replaced by a perimeter fence, there will be new stalls and toilets for the traders, a market office, a storage container, planting of ten mature trees and more.
The aim is to have the work completed so that the site opens for trading in the early autumn.
For more information see the Friends of Barnet Market (FoBM) website and you can join and be a friend of the market too. As Chris says …
