VINCI St. Modwen (VSM) will be holding a second public exhibition on Saturday 14th December to display refined proposals for the redevelopment of the New Covent Garden Market sites.
The exhibition will showcase how the development will transform the area with new homes, shops, a park and a modern new market. It will also show how VSM have responded to the community feedback received at an initial exhibition held earlier this year.
Colin Darby, Planning Manager at VSM, said:
“At our first consultation event in July, many people we spoke to were supportive of the plans, and they gave us useful feedback which we have considered and responded to.
“We hope that people are able to attend the second consultation event to see how the plans have progressed and provide a further opportunity for the local community to take part in the planning process.”
Jan Lloyd, Chief Executive of CGMA said:
“These designs are hugely exciting and the creation of modern new facilities will secure the long term future of the UK’s largest wholesale market, employing over 2,500 people in around 200 tenant businesses.
“The Garden Heart will also provide a new centre for food and flowers, with restaurants, business services and a public market which will be a fantastic resource for local people. We are continuing to work closely with VSM and our tenant community to finalise the design details and we hope the public do take the time to engage in this further consultation.”
The public exhibition will be held at Covent House, New Covent Garden Market, SW8 5NX on Saturday 14th December 2013 10am – 4pm.
