Hereford Cattle Market demolition work to begin next week
11:07am Friday 28th September 2012 in Local News
WORK on Hereford's long-awaited multi-million pound retail quarter will finally begin next week.
Councillor John Jarvis, the leader of Herefordshire Council, said this morning that demolition work will start on Monday.
He also told a meeting of the Full Council that British Land are expected to sign a deal later today on the £80 million Old Market development.
Companies such as Waitrose and Debenhams are expected to move to the city centre site and a multi-screen Odeon cinema will also be built.
Planning permission for the scheme, managed by Hereford Futures, was granted almost one year ago.
Demolition work was set to begin in January this year but the Queen's visit was given as one of the reasons for the delay.
There will be more from the meeting in next week's Hereford Times.
