New Covent Garden Market is currently undergoing an exciting major redevelopment, which began back in 2015. To date approximately 25% of the building work has been completed.

Covent Garden Market Authority (CGMA) together with the Covent Garden Tenants Association (CGTA) propose three changes to the original redevelopment plan that both parties agree will improve the market.

The pictures below illustrate the proposed changes to help you better understand them.

As a public body, CGMA must consult on significant proposals which affect the tenants and other users of the market and stakeholders who are likely to be affected.

The three changes that are being consulted on are:

1. The enlargement of the vehicle loading areas for Building C and the unbuilt part of Building A, this is achieved by moving back the front of those buildings at ground floor level by 9 metres and removing some of the proposed supporting columns.

2. Widening the proposed Buyers’ Walk in the yet unbuilt part of Building B. The proposal is that it be between 6 metres and 8 metres wide instead of 4.5 metres.

3. Extending the canopies in the unbuilt part of Building B to provide addition weather protection. After the consultation period has ended, a report on the responses will be compiled and the CGMA Board will consider it and make a formal decision as to whether to proceed with all, some or none of the proposals. The report on the consultation will be published on the CGMA website, as will the Board’s conclusions..
