Just two months after being saved, the Town Hall Market is set to receive a £13,000 facelift.

Welshpool Town Council had mooted the idea to close the market and rebuild a new facility between the retail park and town centre, but a petition swayed opinion in favour of the traders, despite another petition calling for it to be closed.

And tonight, the Town Council will be asked to rubber stamp a recommendation from the Council Services Committee to inject £13,000 into the facility.

The proposal is to install new lowered LED lighting and heating, power doors at the front entry and to carry out a “redecoration programme”. Ceiling tiles in the front market will be replaced, new extractor fans fitted to the toilets as well as new lighting installed in the toilets and café.

Minutes for tonight’s full council meeting state: “The Committee recommends that the scheme is adopted with an estimated budget of £13,000. Quotes to be gained and approved by the Committee at each stage. A grant from the Burgesses Land Trust has been approved for the lighting and electrical works of around £8,000.”
