Chesterfield Outdoor Market Have Your Say 1


Chesterfield Outdoor Market - Have your say


Chesterfield’s outdoor market is the heart of Chesterfield town centre, and a key part of our history, with markets being held here since 1204.

As town centres change and adapt to match the needs from consumers and businesses, Chesterfield Borough Council has appointed retail market development company, Quarterbridge to develop meaningful engagement to inform the planning and design for the future Outdoor Market.

The revitalising the heart of Chesterfield project seeks to improve the quality of Chesterfield town centre as a location to visit, live and invest and to establish itself as a ‘contemporary market town’. Part of the project is investing in the outdoor market to increase footfall, widen the demographic of shoppers and create a space capable of hosting events.

This first stage of this project In December 2020 captured opinions, thoughts and aspirations from stakeholders. Thank you to everyone who completed one of the surveys.

These are now being fed into a detailed design process. This will be published and consulted on towards the end of February 2021.

If you have any further comments on Chesterfield Outdoor Market you can still email with your opinions, thoughts and aspirations.

Frequently asked questions

What are these questionnaires about?

Chesterfield’s outdoor market is the heart of Chesterfield town centre and as town centres change and adapt to match the needs from consumers and businesses, we want to gather thoughts and opinions about the market to develop options to improve, modernise and improve the market. We want to hear from market traders, town centre businesses, residents and anyone else who has an interest in Chesterfield.


Who is running this questionnaire?

Chesterfield Borough Council has appointed Quarterbridge to manage the process on their behalf. Quarterbridge will analyse responses and develop options which will be consulted upon in 2021.


What is the closing date for responses?

This is the start of the conversation and while we have an end date for the questionnaire of Monday 4 January 2021, so that we can start to develop options, we will continue to listen.


What happens next?

All responses will be analysed by Quarterbridge's expert team who will develop some options for Chesterfield Borough Council to look at. These could be about improving the market layout, holding more events or having a greater food and drink offer for example. But to do the best for Chesterfield, the expert team want to know what everyone thinks. Options will be presented to Chesterfield Borough Council and a preferred option will be consulted on with market traders, businesses and the public starting in February 2021. Works will commence later in the year, and finish for Christmas 2021.
