It's part of the City Council's ten-year strategy to keep the market a vibrant place to shop.

The idea is create more jobs and boost the city's economy.

"At each stage in this process we have really wanted the traders and the wider public to be involved and to give us their views.

Nearly 1,000 people responded to last year's survey, which was fantastic, and we separately consulted businesses, traders and other groups to make sure that as far as possible we reflected everyone's voice in the shaping of our strategy.

Now this formal consultation seeks to make sure that our strategy is right before it is formally adopted."
