Transforming the heart of Epsom

Epsom’s central Market Place has long been a defining focal point of this bustling market town. Today, the area is not only for shoppers there’s a flourishing dining and leisure scene too, so now it’s being brought into the 21st century.

The current paving is reaching the end of its life and, rather than simply replace it, Epsom and Ewell Borough Council, in partnership with Surrey County Council (SCC), is taking the opportunity to provide a comprehensive upgrade to the area to transform its appearance and make the area much more of a destination for customers and visitors.

None of the work is being paid for by local tax payers. Instead, most of the money is coming from the borough council, which is making use of the contributions that housing developers have made to fund local infrastructure schemes such as this. The actual work is being managed by Surrey County Council and undertaken by their contractors.

We're currently holding a small pictorial  exhibition at the Town Hall showing the evolution to the Market Place area from when it was the village pond to the Queen's visit in October 1984.
