Sneinton Market

Nottingham City Council have announced the latest plans for the redevelopment of Sneinton Market, with work due to start on site in late October and be completed by the end of 2015.

Since purchasing the Sneinton Market site in November 2013 Nottingham City Council has been working to improve this important part of the city’s heritage and move forward its plans to reinvigorate the site as a focal point for Nottingham’s emerging creative sector. The units on the site will be refurbished into workshops and studios for use by creative enterprises – helping to establish a vibrant creative business community and revitalise Sneinton Market as a visitor destination.

Nottingham City Council has been working closely with existing businesses based at Sneinton Market since taking ownership to enable them to input to the future plans for the site. In order to start construction on site, the Council has had to formally terminate their current tenancies, and has been working closely with the individual businesses to help them find alternative accommodation either on the Sneinton Market site or elsewhere in the city.                                                                                                  IMG_1812

The majority of the site will be vacant by 10th August 2014, allowing Wates to start the process of undertaking more intensive surveys and conditions works ahead of work starting on site at the end of October. The first phase of the refurbishment will be complete in April 2015, with full completion of the project by the end of 2015.

Nottingham City Council’s Employer Hub will be working with the contractors to make sure that local people can benefit from the construction jobs created as a result of the regeneration activity, and to capitalise on posts in the creative businesses attracted to the site. Any businesses interested in taking up a unit in the refurbished Sneinton Market should contact Cathy Mahmood at the CQ on: or 0115 876 3737.

The redevelopment of Sneinton Market forms part of a broader programme of regeneration activity to Build a Better Nottingham, which currently also includes work to improve the public realm in the Creative Quarter; the redevelopment of Trinity Square into a an attractive, flexible, multi-use space; more than £750m worth of investment in transport infrastructure across Nottingham; the biggest council home building programme in the city in 40 years; and a £43m transformation of the Council’s leisure centres.


Nottingham City Council gave the site to Wates Construction, with the promise of redevelopment beginning within weeks and completing by the end of 2015.

The aim of the plans is to make Sneinton Market a focal point of  the Creative Quarter, with the empty units along three of the avenues being revamped into workshops and studios. Read more about Sneinton Market Renovation…
