The Council is seeking views on the possible expansion of the market in their Local Development Framework Core Strategy Options paper which was published yesterday. The Council and other landowners, including Peabody and the Broadway Centre, are working together to look at the potential for bringing forward a major regeneration scheme to expand the market as part of a mixed-use scheme. Traders and residents are also being asked their views on ideas around opening up a new access to the market on Goldhawk Road to complement its two current entrances.
Councillor Mark Loveday, Cabinet Member for Strategy at H&F Council, said: “Shepherds Bush Market has been the heart of the area for nearly 100 years and we want to make sure it stays that way. The market currently sits on a very cramped site which prohibits any major improvements. We want to encourage any scheme that opens up the market, with the possibility of new shops and leisure facilities”.
Transport for London own the current market site and the adjoining owners are Octavia Housing, The Broadway Centre and Peabody.
