Brownhills Market earns a reprieve

Brownhills Market is to return for two days a week from November under a leading Black Country management firm, it emerged today.

LSD Promotions will relaunch the Silver Street pitch on Thursdays and Saturdays after the Walsall Council-run market collapsed.

The company operates the popular Sunday Bescot Market in the grounds of Walsall Football Club on Sundays along with stalls in Halesowen and Kidderminster.

The Brownhills pitch has been standing empty for more than six months and the external operators have agreed a two year licence with the council.

A new permanent market is to created afterwards as part of the redevelopment of the town's Tesco.

The first market day will be November 4 ensuring traders are in place ahead of the anticipated busy period in the lead up to Christmas.

Regeneration chief councillor Adrian Andrew, said: "This is brilliant news. We have long said that the market is important to Brownhills. We could have walked away but instead have worked to bring the return of the market."

The market has been empty since March, after traders left following a wrangle between the council and its previous operators.
