The brightly coloured roofs on the stalls at Hyde Market are very distinctive. In 2012 an extensive revamp of Hyde Market is to take place. The 1.2m redevelopment will begin in January 2012 following the completion of a public consultation. The revamp of Hyde Market will see the creation of a civic space for events and a change in the layout of stalls to improve access. Key elements of the proposed scheme include the use of high quality materials, removal of street clutter, changing the lay-out of the stalls to improve access to Clarendon Square shopping centre, and the creation of a civic space. The work will take place in two phases so that half of the market will remain open and in use whilst work takes place on the other half. The whole work should be completed by September 2012. The trees such as the one seen behind the stalls will be removed and new permanent stalls provided, Whether their roofs will still be so colourful remains to be seen.

Hyde Town Hall can be seen in the background.
