Another market day on the cards

Amber Valley Borough Council is due to consider a request made by Heanor Traders’ Association to extend market days in the town to Mondays.

A report is due to be decided on by borough councillors at the Wednesday, September 29 full council meeting. Market days in Heanor currently run on a Friday and Saturday.

Council officers have recommended councillors approve the scheme.

The report reads: “The development of footfall within Heanor town centre is a key factor in achieving the objectives set out in the Heanor Masterplan 2008. Extending the market will help to increase footfall.”
