Stockyard Melton Mowbray proposals and opportunity for feedback

Closed 3 May 2024

Opened 22 Mar 2024


The development to enhance the Stockyard is being funded by the Levelling up Fund, which is designed to invest in infrastructure and support regeneration across the UK. Investment in the Stockyard will create a centre of excellence around food and drink production and experience, complementing the rich offer already in existence within the High Street area and harnessing our ‘Rural Capital of Food’ brand.

The development will also play host to a multifunctional event space that will support the growth of our existing
regional and national events calendar, making the Stockyard a versatile destination through its ability to cater for large-scale events, music, and food festivals.
