Town Square Planning Application

Steve Burns, Regeneration and Heritage, SMBC is applying for permission for change of use of Town Square, Mersey Way, Mersey Square and Warren Street for the periodic display of stalls, stands and promotional vehicles, for the publicity, promotion and sale of goods, services and events.

Steve has said that there has been difficulty advertising the Market to the large numbers of shoppers on Merseyway because of planning restrictions on Merseyway. For example, he wants market stalls on Town Square, Mersey Way and Warren Street to encourage shoppers to go up to the market, but that requires changes in regulations. Hence this application.

It is to be hoped that this will lead to a major boost for the market. There are a lot of shoppers on Mersey Way and there is now a convenient link via TKMaxx, but many shoppers seem to be unaware of the market.

There must be some shoppers out there who don't read this blog!
