Sutton outdoor market temporary relocation

Posted onPosted on 21st Jun

Sutton’s outdoor market will be temporarily relocated from Monday, 24th June, while improvement works take place on Portland Square in the town.

Ashfield District Council’s ambitious plans include removing the sundial, replacing the paving to make it level access, and installing two
large, raised planters featuring mature native trees, grass, ambient lighting, and in- built seating.

Sutton’s outdoor market, which previously traded on Portland Square every Monday, will be temporarily relocated to Low Street (outside Costa Coffee, next to the Market Place car park) until the works are finished early next year.

Near Wetherspoons in Sutton, work is already well under way to turn the derelict Fox Street Site into the new home of Sutton’s outdoor markets, events, and pop-up markets. The space will also be used as a car park when markets aren’t running.

John Bennett, executive director of Place, said “Sutton’s outdoor market is being relocated whilst we get to work on transforming Portland Square, and the market’s new location from 2025, Fox Street. The new temporary location for Sutton’s outdoor market will provide increased footfall due to its proximity to our Market Place car park and Idlewells Indoor Market.

“This is a really exciting time as we start to see our plans for Sutton town centre take shape. Portland Square and Fox Street developments will give a new lease of life to Sutton, and will complement our plans for Cornerstone Theatre to provide an enhanced cultural and retail offering.”
