Allenton Market Consultation

The Council currently operates Allenton Market on Osmaston Road, Derby on Tuesday afternoon, Friday and Saturday.

In recent years, the market has seen a drop in traders and customers and has faced severe trading challenges because of increased competition from supermarkets, changing demographics and consumer preferences.

The Council has reviewed the operation of the market and has concluded that it is no longer financially viable to continue to run it and will need to cease operations. One of the alternative options for the market, is to open up the opportunity to traders and local community groups to operate the market retaining it for the local community.

We would like your views on the proposals for the future of Allenton Market.

The consultation and Expression of Interest period runs from Monday 19 August to Friday 11 October 2019. Please complete the Allenton Market Consultation Survey to register your views and suggestions.

If you are interested in applying to operate Allenton Market, please read the Allenton Market - Expression of Interest Application Pack and apply using the Allenton Market - Expression of Interest Form.

The Council's Cabinet met on 17 July 2019 and a copy of the Cabinet report for Allenton Market details the information and the recommendations approved.
