WELSHPOOL LIVESTOCK MARKET

August 21, 2019

DEVELOPMENT | Commercial

The Pickstock Group relocated Welshpool Livestock Market from its town centre site which became non-compliant with current legislation to an out of town location.

The market is now one of the largest livestock markets in Europe, spanning 149,000 sqft. This state of the art facility is fully compliant with new bio security and DEFRA legislation.

The relocation of the market to an out of town location was deemed a good solution and an excellent local economic driver through growth and also allowed for retail development in the town where the old market stood.

The Pickstock Group  worked with Welshpool Livestock Sales to design the facility and also ensure that it was sustainable.

The new market was delivered in just 40 weeks, on time and within budget and was officially opened by Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
