Car parking boost at business centre

Work to provide another 50 car parking spaces at a Northallerton business centre has begun.

The spaces will satisfy the increasing demand at Evolution by both the resident businesses and the visiting conference centre users.

The Hambleton District Council facility on the County Business Park is home to 19 businesses employing around 50 people - ranging from architects, accountants and a recruitment company to surveyors, physiotherapists and graphic designers. It is also an active conference centre with regular meetings involving companies across the district.

“For the past three years the council has rented land from a neighbouring company to provide more spaces but with demand rising at the centre we have acquired a vacant unit next door to convert into more spaces,” said district council Director of Economy and Planning, Helen Kemp.

“As the business centre has become busier and busier spaces are at a premium so we hope this investment will satisfy the need for both resident tenants and the many visitors we have using it for conferences and meetings.”

It is hoped the work will be complete by the end of August.
