In December 2010 Ryedale District Council confirmed that an offer from Holbeck Land and a design proposal for the development of the 4.5 acre Wentworth Street Car Park had been successfully approved by the Council.

This agreement was secured after 3 rounds of bidding from a list of over 30 submissions through an initial shortlist of 9 to a final presentation from 5 bidders.

Ryedale DC advised that a key consideration was the design proposal prepared by London based Architects Panter Hudspith for a food store led scheme which scored highly in terms of connectivity to the immediate Town Centre and a template of materials complimentary to the local architecture.

Holbeck Land is now moving forwards with a full professional team to a Planning Application in a Joint Venture with Leeds based Partners GMI Construction who have a 35 year history of successful development across the North of England and considerable experience of delivering sustainable food store construction.

Other consultants include Burnley Wilson Fish, Pell Frischmann and NLP.
