Urmston market food hall

Written by: Category: News August 17, 2017

The McGoff Group has completed the acquisition of the Urmston Market site on Railway Road, enabling it to press on with plans to create a food hall at the site, along with residential.

The developer secured a hybrid planning permission in March, which included detailed consent for three five-bedroom houses on a plot between Greenfield Church and Primrose Avenue. Work is scheduled to start in November.

The permission also included outline consent for a new food hall to be built next to the existing market hall. This will look to “exploit the popularity of local markets, as demonstrated by the new Altrincham market”.

Although subject to changes before submission, its size is likely to accommodate 160 to 180 covers in a central seated area, with 10 to 12 food operators.

The site currently hosts an artisan market organised by The Market Co on the first Saturday of each month.

McGoff is working with WMC Retail Partners, the London-headquartered market manager and placemaking consultant, with Salford-based Street Design Partnership leading on the market’s detailed application. Further advisors on interiors and branding could be drafted in.

An application is expected to be submitted in either October or November, with a start on-site in early 2018 ahead of a summer opening.
