Devonport Market Hall consultations for residents

People living in Devonport are invited to have their say regarding the future of the Devonport Market Hall.

Drop-in sessions will be taking place later this month at the Redrow shop units on Phelps Road, Devonport. With local residents and businesses invited to say their opinions regarding the future developments. The Grade II listed building is set to become Plymouth’s new space for digital arts, research, education and visitors in an increasingly digital-focused environment when it is planned to open Summer 2017.

The development work is being led by the social enterprise company Real Ideas Organisation. The same company who are also responsible for the restoration of Devonport Guildhall and Column. The proposed development will be a significant moment for Devonport, with the area featuring office, lab and teaching space. As well as conference facilities, a cafe bar and a range of cultural and learning activities.

Ed Whitelaw from RIO said, “Two of the problems we’re trying to solve are around how we work with people to support skills and the regeneration of the city, to do that well we need to listen to people.”

The consultation sessions will take place on Thursday 21 July, 3-7pm and Thursday 26 July, 5-8pm. For more information on the Market Hall, visit HERE and follow them on Twitter HERE.
