CDU local association refuses relocation of the market on the St. George place

The relocation of the weekly market is included in the draft of the integrated action concept "Innenstadt Bocholt - Perspektive 2025". In order to make a clear political commitment to the location of the market in the Gasthausplatz, the Ortsverband Mitte will make an appropriate amendment to the CDU parliamentary group for the further deliberations of the integrated action concept. This was decided by the board during its last meeting. "The weekly market on the Gasthausplatz is not only a magnet for the Bocholter, but also for many visitors to the city, who visit Bocholt on a regular basis in order to freshen up the market For the numerous restaurateurs and retailers based in the Liebfrauenviertel, the weekly market in the inn space has an existential significance: the market attracts potential customers to the neighborhood.
