In 2016 Birmingham launched a £500 million plan to create a brand new place for the city. Totalling 14 hectares, the site is one of the largest and most attractive city centre development opportunities in the country.
In June 2017 NABMA Market Place (NMP) were appointed by Bassetlaw District Council to provide an appraisal on the current market offers in Retford and Worksop with the aim of ensuring their future success.
Our consultants conducted several site visits, desktop reviews and consulted with key stakeholders. Market finances and rental rates were collated and analysed. Current retail trends and local competitors considered. The market layouts, marketing activities and the use of social media examined.
The following project objectives were met:
A full detailed report was presented to Bassetlaw Council. The report was received favourably, and the Council are moving forwards with recommendations.
“We engaged NAMBA Market Place to look at our markets and operations and were delighted with the knowledge and expertise they bought. The Market Place team engaged well at all levels and did the hard miles to fully understand the issues we were facing. They understand how markets run and we have used their findings to actively improve the offer and financial viability. Highly recommended.”
