Norwich Creative Market proves


popular with shoppers Page 10 Work underway at Derby


Green hoardings and scaf- folding have sprung up in Derby in the last few weeks as work gets underway to transform the city’s Victorian Grade II listed Market Hall. Local media has reported


Derby’s Market Hall, showing the balcony that could be home to a café and wine bar culture in the evenings Mr Barker says the project


that “pillars of scaffolding snake upwards and across the entire width and length of the building” as contractors prepare for the installation of a false ceiling. There will eventually will


be 12 miles of scaffolding, weighing 500 tonnes, and the installation of ambient lighting in this temporary ceiling will allow stallholders to continue trading in the hall while work is ongoing. Meanwhile a 20 week


survey will be undertaken to determine what repairs are necessary, after which the required work will be carried out on the roof. There will also be extensive scaffolding on the outside of the building to allow workmen to carry out repairs to the roof externally as well. When the roof is completed,


work will begin on the transformation of the stalls and the market area itself, including the possible creation of a cafe and wine bar culture on the balcony during the evenings, when the stalls below are closed. Built between 1864 and


1866 at an original cost of £29,000, the Market Hall was designed by engineer Rowland Mason, who was also responsible for the Albert Bridge in London and the

dome of the Royal Albert Hall. In 1989 the building underwent a multi-million pound transformation, and ten years ago some remedial work was done on the roof. More recently, however, incidences of high winds and snow have raised concerns about glass falling from the corroding metal in the roof, compromising the safety of shoppers and traders. It is understood that Derby Council has up to £11.4m available for the repair and refurbishment of the hall, and the aim is to create a fresh and contemporary market environment. Derby City Council cabinet


member Mick Barker has paid tribute to the work on the project initiated by his predecessor, Cllr Martin Rawson, who was part of the then ruling Labour group. Mr Barker told local media:


“This is a much loved building which is in urgent need of repair. Cllr Rawson started this and we will continue the work to make sure it is completed. This is a massive investment for the city. “But until the workmen get


to look at the state of the metal in the roof, we won’t know exactly what needs to be done and the final cost. “All in all the project,


together with refurbishment of the stalls area, will probably take about three years, so it was very important to keep the place trading. It would have been cheaper to close, but it was vital to keep the place open. “Phase one is the roof


and phase two is the modernisation, which we hope will include a food court among other things.”

has not been delayed by the incident involving steeplejack William Ball, who fell to his death while working at night time on the inside of the roof in January last year. “That incident is still being investigated by the Health and Safety Executive and the circumstances are still to be revealed,” he said. “But I do not believe it has


held up any work we have been planning to do, but it did make the council re-assess the way in which the work should be carried out, and this is why the false ceiling is now being installed.” Chair of the Derby Market


Traders’ Association, Linda Aston, has praised the way the building work has been


planned and the fact that stallholders have been kept informed about the project. This has resulted in the


wooden panelling around the scaffolding featuring Perspex panels to make them less oppressive, while also allowing some natural light to come in through the false ceiling, which is essential for plants to survive in the Market Hall during the work. Ms Aston told local media: “Customers have assured us they will continue to shop, and as we would much sooner remain open, we are pleased with the efforts that the council is making so this can happen. “We are also getting new


traders in, which is amazing considering the work is about to start.”


To make sure that shoppers


in Derby are aware that the market is remaining open during the work, traders have also taken out an advert on the side of a bus. Ms Aston added: “We are


hoping that a new generation of market shoppers will come along to see us, as the bus will also be picking up students.” Work to erect the scaffolding


both internally and externally will continue each night, ahead of the survey and the commencement of repair work later this year.
