MIXED-USE SCHEME EARMARKED FOR FORMER PRISON SITE

Insider Media

27th February 2017

The site of Northallerton's former prison could be transformed into a mixed-use scheme after plans for the project were revealed.

Hambleton District Council and property developer Wykeland Group have joined forces to breathe life into the 3.5-acre plot.

The development would comprise shops, apartments, restaurants, a five-screen cinema and a quadrangle for public events.

The former female wings of the facility would include space for community use, a possible heritage centre, space for start-up businesses and a digital hub.

"Buying the prison site presented the council with a once in a lifetime opportunity to support and strengthen the retail and leisure arms of Northallerton," said council leader Mark Robson. "But this development will also benefit the whole of Hambleton.

"These plans will maximise job opportunities as well as complement the existing high street. And it will boost the night time economy with its diverse range of uses."

Wykeland was chosen by the council following a tendering process, with the pair set to launch a joint venture company.

"We are delighted to be entering into partnership with the Wykeland Group which has a great track record of delivering similar schemes," said Robson.

"The company shares our goals to create a high quality scheme which will benefit the whole community."

Work is expected to begin in 2018, subject to planning permission, across two or three phases. Demolition on the site will be completed in the summer.

Leeds-based WSB Property Consultants is the retained agent advising Wykeland.
