People need to start using both markets, indoor and outdoor, otherwise we will lose them! The indoor market has a fantastic haberdashery stall. The outdoor market on a Monday has second hand stuff – I’ve found some real treasures. The fruit and veg stalls on Friday and Saturday, plant stalls and ‘proper’ farm eggs are well worth a visit.

  1. The Shipley public swimming pool and gym need an upgrade. At present the opening times cater to people that don’t work. This does not suit people that work full time, many of which live in Shipley and Saltaire. In Australia, gyms open with classes from 6am, yet there are no gyms in the area that do this. We need accessible gyms for busy working people to promote more active lifestyles. A Shipley gym and pool is a good location for people that do not own vehicles, because of good public transport links to this suburb.

  2. These are excellent ideas. Shipley town centre is in desperate need of updating, to encourage more businesses to invest and rent the store fronts.

  3. Some fantastic restaurants in shipley but they’re spread about. How about incentives to outlying ones such as Tapas Tree or Thai Fever to move into vacant shops around the square. This could create a vibrant mixed use square of shops, bars & restaurants. Old vacated buildings could be flattened and landscaped.

  4. The markets need improvement and the best way to do that is to improve parking in the area (you’re lucky to park on the side streets, or you’re stuck with the ASDA car park, or even the pay and display that’s further out). People would rather drive further or get the train to Leeds or Bradford than Shipley to go shopping as it’s just filled with old places and charity shops. It would need a serious restyling for people to consider going shopping there, as it just looks run down. Maybe the outdoor market could have more variety and the underground could be redecorated, and the outdoor charity shops could be local businesses or a small chain store (like an M&S or a clothes shop like Next, etc).
