  • CQ BID and Business News E-bulletin Issue No 241           January 2015    Markets Consultation Event - 20 January 5-7.30pm The Cathedral Quarter BID have been advised that a Markets Consultation Event is to take place at the Council House on 20 January between 5pm-7pm. Below is a copy of the letter from the consultants inviting market traders to the event.    Dear Market Traders. You may be aware that we have been asked by Derby Council to explore options for the Eagle Market and the Market Hall. This includes options both for what could be done to improve business for traders in the short term, and what could be done to ensure the success of markets in Derby in the longer term. We do a lot of work on business planning and options for places that attract visitors. Our team also includes one of the most successful market operators in the country and an architecture practice. We are keen to talk to as many traders as possible and find out about how they are doing currently and what they think could be done to improve matters. We know how important the matter is to you and how our work could affect your lives. The main part of that consultation is a survey that will be done, on a face to face basis, by a market research company called Spirul. We plan that every trader will have the chance to complete that. We would also, however, like to talk more informally with traders. We will be having, to that end, a drop in session from 5pm - 7.30pm on Tuesday 20TH January. It will be in Meeting Room F on the 2nd floor of the Council House. It will be an informal session. We will talk to you on a one to one basis and in small, informal, groups. There will not be any agenda or presentations. You can come at any time and don't need to stay the whole period. You can ask anything you want about our work and tell us anything, in confidence if you prefer. Andrew Phillips from Spirul will be there so that you can complete the survey if you wish. Spirul will visit you at another time, however, if you are unable to make it. This will not be the last consultation event. The main one will be when we have analysed the situation and identified some options. We plan to settle the date of that shortly so that you have ample notice. We very much hope that as many of you as possible will be able to come along on Tuesday evening. My colleagues and I look forward to seeing you there. With kind regards. David Geddes (Project Director)     We apologise for the late notice but would encourage all market traders to attend where possible. We have been advised that this letter has also been sent to the Traders representative for each market.       Individual Diverse Inspiring www.derbycathedralquarter.co.uk    01332 419053   You have been sent this email as your details are registered against  a business located in the Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District The BID is project managed by Partnerships for Better Business UK LLP (pfbbUK)  JOIN OUR MAILING LIST
