The “centrepiece” of a Derbyshire town is to receive a £4m renovation, officials have announced.
Work will begin in February on Chesterfield’s 154-year-old Market Hall to upgrade internal facilities and restore the listed exterior.
Traders will move to a temporary space in New Square while work is under way.
Much of the work will be paid for with £2.1m of European and Lottery grants. Chesterfield Borough Council will provide the rest of the funding.
The Market Hall is scheduled to reopen in February 2013.Follow @pdview
