A £1.8million refurbishment of a popular indoor market has been financed by its landlord, Ashfield District Council and D2N2.

Sutton-in-Ashfield Indoor Market, within the Nottinghamshire town’s Idlewells Shopping Centre, was updated and improved in a £1.8m project. Works were begun and completed in 2017.

The proposed improvements included:

  • a new market entrance
  • roof space, allowing in more natural light
  • better accessibility for people with mobility problems
  • a new seating and café area
  • new trader stall counters.

The cost of the £1.8m works was met by Ashfield District Council, the market's landlord and with £375,000 from D2N2’s LGF allocation.

The refurbishment is designed to make the market more attractive to customers and draw in new traders, increasing its profitability. The project is linked to other regeneration works in Sutton-in-Ashfield town centre and a wider Nottinghamshire ‘town centres programme’.
