Hackney Council is seeking comments on the design options on the proposed £1million Ridley Road Market scheme which seeks to upgrade the street lighting and improve pavements in the market.

Consultation on the planned changes has already taken place with local residents, businesses and market traders.

A public event will be held on Thursday 10 September 2009 from 3:30pm to 8:30pm at Centerprise Trust, 136 Kingsland High Street E8 2NS.

There you may discuss with Council staff and the design consultants how the design ideas are being developed.

For further information and project updates visit this page of the Council’s website or telephone 0208 356 7741.
