Livestock Market site, Louth

We're currently consulting the community and interested parties on the future provision of a Livestock Market facility in Louth.

The ADV partnership has been appointed as preferred bidder for the site following a marketing exercise. The ADV Partnership is a joint venture between Arke Developments and VINCI Development UK.

Due to the nature of the bid and the proposals submitted by ADV, we have asked the Partnership to do further work on their proposal over the coming weeks. ADV has said it is developing a proposal that aims to attract a number of retailers that generate an increased footfall to the town centre and create new jobs.

Once the work is completed by ADV it will be for the Council to decide whether or not it wishes to agree a conditional sale of the site. If a conditional sale is agreed, ADV will undertake widespread local consultation on its proposed scheme.

We have been working closely with Architects to develop proposals for what a new Livestock Market facility might look like, the facilities it would need to offer and the cost (between £4m and £5m). There is a legal obligation on the Council (under Louth's Royal Charters of the 16th and 17th centuries) to ensure there is a Livestock Market facility available in Louth.

The current Livestock Market operates on a Thursday morning each week and has seen usage significantly reduce in recent years.
