First Part of Malton Livestock Market Re-Development Submitted
8:37am 4th February 2014
Detailed plans for the first part of the controversial re-development of Malton's Livestock Market have been submitted to planners at Ryedale Council.
The Fitzwilliam Malton Estate has put in plans for King's Head Yard, the land at the back of the King's Head pub, which the Estate says will improve the link between the Market Place and the new stores planned for the re-developed Livestock Market.
The "9 to 11" home interiors store would be extended under the proposals. The more detailed proposals are now being brought forward after outline planning permission was granted to re-develop the Livestock Market to allow for a new Waitrose or Booths supermarket, a second new shop and 170 car parking spaces.
Roddy Bushell, estate manager of Fitzwilliam Malton Estate, which owns the site, said; ‘This is part of the work we are doing to move from ‘outline’ to full ‘detailed’ planning consent for the retail redevelopment of the Livestock Market Site."
‘King’s Head Yard will become a superb link between a new food hall store planned for the Livestock Market Site and the existing retailers in Malton’s Market Place. The King’s Head Yard has to be done first because if it’s left until later, the builders might have to tramp through Waitrose or Booths to build it!’
The Estate says it is consulting widely on the detailed design and is carrying out site surveys. It adds King’s Head Yard has to be the first part of the development because it has to be constructed first before it gets ‘landlocked’ by the main development.
