Traders in a West Yorkshire town have urged the council there to re-think its plan to relocate them – not once, but twice. Indoor stallholders at


Huddersfield’s Queensgate Market are being moved as part of Kirklees Council’s recent l y announced r e g e n e r a t i o n p l a n , Huddersfield Blueprint. The idea is that they


will relocate to the empty BHS building – which the council now owns following its recent purchase of the town’s Piazza – at some point next year. But the BHS building


itself is earmarked for demolition in 2023 as part of the council’s Cultural Heart plan, meaning the traders would only be there for three years. The council has told them


that when the bulldozers move in on the Piazza they will then be moved to the current open market site at the town’s Brook Street. Unhappy about the


double move, Huddersfield members of the National Market Traders Federation (NMFT) have called on the council to re-consider. In a lengthy statement


issued to local media they have said they would like to remain at the historic Shambles area – the alley between the former BHS and the Boots store – once the regeneration is complete. A spokesperson for the


traders said: “Queensgate market was going to be the heart of the cultural quarter, but Kirklees omitted to say that the market traders wouldn’t be the tenants.” The group said i t


was not out to “knock Kirklees or the blueprint” but it did want to see “unprecedented openness and transparency” during the upcoming consultation process. “Queensgate market


tenants were not totally despondent when told they would have to be moved out of the market by autumn 2020 into the BHS building. “They however were,

shall we say, not overly impressed to be told they would be moved again in approximately three years to the outdoor market area. “The markets need a


more structured and defined plan, not we will move you into an old BHS store and then who knows where or what will happen. “I t ought to be one


move only; relocating any business is risky – to do it twice is double jeopardy.” The traders described the


outdoor market area at the far end of town as “the back of beyond” and said the location was “completely wrong on many counts”.

Traders at Huddersfield’s Queensgate Market may have to move not once, but twice The traders want the indoor


market to stay in the BHS building, or preferably the Boots premises, and say the outdoor market along with its listed canopy structure could relocate to the town’s Nelson Mandela Square. Kirklees Council did not


respond directly to the comments when asked to confirm or deny the BHS move. However , Cl l r Peter


McBride, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, told local media: “The feedback and amount of engagement we’ve had on The Huddersfield Blueprint plans already has been fantastic. “I’m delighted that, like us,


people are passionate about the future of our town centres and successful markets are be a big part of that. “This is a plan for the people of Kirklees. That’s


Not one move but two


why we launched a three- month engagement and consul tat ion process, because we want local people to have their say.” Cllr McBride encouraged


people to visit the recently opened Hudder s f ield Blueprint shop at the town’s Piazza Centre, adding that the plans could also be viewed and commented on online at the council’s website.
