Plans revealed for Assembly Rooms site

Derby City Council has revealed plans for how the site might be used following the demolition of the Assembly Rooms.
Initially the area could be re-landscaped with the
space initially being used for pop-up markets, including food and drink stalls with seating areas, entertainment spaces and car parking. The proposal will ensure the site contributes to the vibrancy of the Market Place and city centre.

Ideas for the future development of the assembly rooms site are currently being worked up by the Council and key partners. The development will contribute to the vibrancy of the Market Place area, complement the new vision for the historic Market Hall, the Quad and refurbishment of the Guildhall.

A vibrant city centre is a key part of the strategy developed to ensure Derby’s economy remains resilient in the face of the COVID-19 health emergency. A task force, made up of representatives from both public and private sectors including the Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter BIDs, is driving activity to maintain business and investor confidence, diversify the local economy and decarbonise the city.

A specific workstream is examining regeneration of the city centre, taking into account new consumer behaviours driven by the pandemic and economic structural change.

This includes exciting plans to deliver a new 3,500 capacity venue in Derby’s Becketwell.
