Construction on the redevelopment of Northallerton’s former prison will start next week.

The Treadmills scheme will see retail, leisure and office units created on the town centre site.

Central Northallerton Development Company Ltd (CNDCL), which is driving forward the project, has appointed Yorkshire based Castlehouse Construction for the first phase of the £17m scheme. Work on this phase is expected to last for eight months.

Hambleton District Councillor Peter Wilkinson a Director of CNDCL said: “We are delighted to announce a start on site for the first phase of Treadmills. We appreciate that the residents and visitors to Northallerton have waited a long time from the closure of the prison to now but hopefully they will be delighted with the new facilities being developed on site.”

UK supermarket group Lidl and Iceland, the UK’s leading specialist frozen food retailer, have committed to the scheme and will open their stores after fit-out following completion of construction.

Five Grade II listed former prison buildings will be restored and brought back to life as part of phase two of the Treadmills development. Phase two will feature a four-screen cinema, to be operated by prestige cinema group Everyman, as well as restaurants, offices and residential.

  • CNDCL is a joint venture formed between Hambleton District Council and leading Yorkshire property developer Wykeland Group to deliver Treadmills.
