Should market move from Town Hall?

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Our scoop last month announcing that plans are afoot to move the indoor market from the Town Hall to a new location on Church Street Car Park has fuelled plenty of debate.

But it seems the traders are not happy with the prospect of moving, and immediately launched a petition opposing the move.

The Town Council says the move would be good for trade, and its location between the retail park and town centre would drive more visitors into Welshpool.

While both sides of the argument have been heard in recent weeks, it is now the time for you, the shoppers, to make your opinions known through an online survey.

“The Council is reviewing what is best for the markets, traders and the town,” said a town council spokesperson. “This survey has been prepared to enable a discussion to take place before any decision is made.”

The survey can be carried out at

It is unclear what the Market Hall would be used for should the move go ahead, but one option mooted is to move the Town Council offices there from its current location to save money.
