The existing facilities, especially those for auctioning cattle, are no longer fit for purpose. Replacement pens are required to ensure that the Melton Livestock Market remains safe, competitive and legally compliant with increasingly stringent regulations.
Phase one of the project involves the replacement and relocation of cow sheds to safeguard the livestock market on its current site for another 20 years.
Morgan Sindall area director Richard Fielding said: “The cattle market in Melton Mowbray will make a significant difference to the local economy and we are pleased to support this project. The market will provide a safer and more welcoming environment for the local farming community with modern livestock facilities.”
Morgan Sindall was awarded the contract through the East Midlands Property Alliance (EMPA) framework.
