Dear Mrs Adams


Thank you for your Freedom of Information request.


Quarterbridge was commissioned in 2014 to undertake a feasibility study
into the relocation of Colchester Market  from Culver Street West into the
High Street.  A later piece of work also similarly considered the
relocation of Street Trading, which has a different legal status.  Street
Trading largely remained in Culver Street West.


The market was relocated to the High Street in April 2015.   


There is no ongoing relationship with Quarterbridge nor Market Asset
Management Company as the project had a strict brief for the study which
was duly completed.


If you have any further questions or concerns regarding this request
please email [1][Colchester Borough Council request email] quoting the reference number above.
