Summer Market Proposal

Re engaging our customers with the town centre and in turn driving footfall will be a vital component of our recovery through the next period. With restrictions easing but a degree of uncertainty remaining plans around footfall driving initiatives require a considered and agile approach. 

We are looking at options to run a Market each Saturday in August on Quarry Street. See key points below and link to a small survey to capture your opinion on this.

  1. Proposed location – Quarry Street. This will drive footfall into the heart of the improvement district
  2. Stall holders – We propose providing a large proportion of stalls for FREE to BID levy payers. We will also invite high quality and experienced Lanarkshire stall holders to augment the mix
  3. Layout – x30 back to back stalls on the middle of the street in an effort to drive footfall into the existing businesses
  4. Marketing – The BID will launch a summer campaign across the region to promote the Market and the improvement district area

Please complete the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YGB52TS
