Changes in EU funding rules get the Market Place trading again.
With significant funding from the EU, the newly refurbished Sneinton Market buildings are now springing to life. Left uncared for by an absent London property developer and finally bought by Nottingham city council, the freshly refurbished units are slowly being filled by new creative SMEs bringing a new vibrancy to Sneinton Market. Separated by wide avenues, they are architecturally unique with the original listed features cleaned up and preserved.
The site received EU funding for the regeneration, however the rules of the funding restricted the ability to trade directly from the premises which caused an initial slow up take on the site. However in November 2016 the government challenged the initial EU funding rules, the restriction has now been over turned. As a result, 20 of the 46 units are now taken according to the Creative Quarter, which is a big leap forward towards achieving a modern, thriving market area again.
