A multi-million pound project to redevelop New Covent Garden Market has been given the go ahead.

The scheme will pave the way for around 3,000 new homes, as well as restaurants and shops on the site over the next 10 years.

The market which was first opened in 1974 will be given a modern makeover and rebranded 'The Garden.'

The residential part of the site will be made up of 623 apartments. Credit: St Modwen
