Market for Kodak site?

The Kodak site could host an open-air market if plans are approved.

Parts of the site, off Headstone Drive in Wealdstone, have been empty for some months after Kodak moved parts of its operations away, but now a planning application has been submitted to start an open-air market on part of the vacant land.

The market would run on Wednesdays to Sundays each week between 9am and 3pm, with around 100 stalls offering a variety of goods.

Max Quagliozzi, manager of FCM Markets which has submitted the bid, told the Harrow Times the move would bring a boost to the local economy. A new open air market provides an opportunity for local people to start their own retail businesses with small overheads.  The market will also create a number of new jobs, such as parking supervisors, security staff.

The market would be in place for three years according to the Times. Land Securities, who own the site since acquiring it from Kodak in January 2008 still want to redevelop the site in the long term.
