Hambleton District Council is entering into a unique partnership to develop the prison site.

It is joining forces with the Wykeland Group of Hull to bring the 3.4 acre site back into use.

Shops, managed workspace, apartments, restaurants, a five screen cinema and a quadrangle for public events are all on the agenda for the town centre space – subject to planning permission and discussions with potential operators.

Wykeland was chosen by the council following a tendering exercise which saw bidders discuss their suggested plans with the council. The final decision was taken by members of full council on 21 February and will see the two partners form a ‘Joint Venture Company’. The three year partnership will see the site transformed.

Initial designs – which reflect the Central Northallerton Masterplan - also include space for community use, a possible heritage centre and a ‘digital hub’. That hub would involve further partnership work – this time with local universities.

The southern end of the site has been earmarked for retail – a food store and two smaller retail units - as well as a 125 space car park.

Work is expected to begin in 2018 in two or three phases – with a planning application and public consultation expected soon.

Demolition on the site will be completed in the summer – an archaeological dig will take place before any new building work begins on site. Details of that work, including opportunities for public involvement, will be announced in the near future.
