The cost of repairing Queensgate Market in Huddersfield could total over £7million

The reaction follows reports in Huddersfield of repair and refurbishment bills for Queensgate Market that could come to over £7million. A Montrose Glass spokesperson provides a statement.

The cost of repairing Queensgate Market in Huddersfield could total over £7million, as the heating system, glazing and insulation all needs to be looked at. The news comes as council members are debating whether or not to go through with the repairs, while a petition signed by more than 900 customers of the market has called on the authorities to act.

The main problem lies with the 1970s heating system, which is not up to the standard required in order to provide traders with warmth during the colder months. The glazing also needs to be looked at and replaced, which adds to the bills even more. However there are some council members who just don’t see value for money by investing so much into the market.

“We simply haven’t got the money,” claimed councillor Peter McBride. “This is about perspective of what is desirable and what is critical. I’ve heard that the future intention of (Queensgate Market) is for a facelift. It’s sensible for us to look at this building together with the private sector. That building could be reconfigured in the context of wider changes.”

Montrose Glass, a leading provider of glass and glazing to people all over the country, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “Queensgate Market is obviously very important for the town and hopefully the council will soon be able to come to an agreement over what to do next. Traders setting up shop need a decent area to do business, and a good heating system in the winter could make all the difference.

“Similarly, the market needs to repair and replace the broken glass to give it a real refurbishment. You can never underestimate the positive effect that good quality glazing has on a building, and the market could really benefit if it acts on customer’s wishes.”
