Public consultation on the improvements for Kendal’s historic Market Place ran from Saturday 25 February until Friday 10 March, inviting comments and suggestions on the preferred options before a final scheme is agreed.

This included new drawings, plans and images, revealing more of what the redesigned Market Place could look like.

In partnership with Cumbria County Council, Kendal Town Council, Kendal Futures and Kendal Civic Society we are leading on the project to create a high quality, versatile space suitable for hosting a wide range of community led events, markets and festivals.

These improvements will follow work by Cumbria County Council, as part of the Market Place improvements, to upgrade the lighting columns on Market Place, due to be completed by Friday 7 April, this will also include removal of the two birch trees.

We are working with businesses and market traders to keep them informed throughout the project. Consultation feedback will be available here once a report is finalised.
