Chorley Covered Market Consultation

Closed 9 Jun 2021

Opened 2 Jun 2021


We are proposing a new indoor seating area in the Covered Market, which will transform the space into an attractive place for locals to meet, greet and eat.

The venue will accommodate up to 120 customers through a combination of tabled seating and more relaxed couches and will be called '1498 @ The Markets' to reflect the market's long history. It will incorporate up to half-a-dozen food stalls as well as a larger licensed bar with the full range of drinks available. The upgrade is part of the Council’s commitment last year to invest £600,000 towards improving the famous market.

Please take some time to answer our short survey in order to give us your views on the proposals.

Why your views matter

We are inviting the public to have their say in order to shape the proposals. Questions that we will be asking include:

  • How often you visit the town centre and Covered Market?
  • What you use the Covered Market for?
  • What are your views on the proposals?
