One of the main reasons for this scheme is to create more space to hold more events and street markets.
We know how much people value our markets and we want to provide a bigger and more vibrant offer to bring more visitors to the town centre..
More space means more stalls and room for built-in seating. There will also be electricity supplies for traders not needing generators or running engines.
It is inevitable that during the construction work market stalls will have to be temporarily relocated around the High Street. However, as we will only take small areas at a time, the impact will be minimal.
We are looking at temporary arrangements and locations with individual market traders.
We will install extra signage to make sure people can find specific traders. We will also use our Braintree Market Facebook page to tell you where to find the market stalls you want to visit.
