Hyde Town Centre Redevelopment Plans
Hyde is to get a new market and civic square as part of a £1.2 million project to improve the town centre and attract more traders and shoppers.
A well-attended public consultation meeting took place in July. Opinions were given by businesses, traders and residents, and Tameside Council has taken these on board as it finalises the scheme.
The proposed plans are now on public display in a variety of community venues including the outdoor and indoor markets, Clarendon Shopping Centre, Hyde Town Hall and Hyde Library.
Pending planning approval, works are due to start early next year and be completed by September. The works will be done in phases so that the market remains open throughout as will the indoor market, located within the Clarendon Shopping Centre.
In addition to the physical improvements, the Council is committed to supporting existing businesses in Hyde and to attracting new ones.
Hyde Business Forum has been relaunched as an arena in which to share views and ideas about how new life can be injected into the town. For more information, contact Andrea Puttnam on 0161 342 3980.
In addition, there is the Tameside Business Family , a free directory for Tameside businesses which also includes details of events such as the highly successful “Meet the Buyer – Meet the Seller” gatherings. Members can publish their own news and keep updated on new developments.
