Ideas that could be included in the proposed new Catterick Garrison town centre have been unveiled.

A consultation has been launched on the plans which would develop empty land in Shute Road and make improvements to the neighbouring Coronation Park.

The project is being worked on by officials from Richmondshire District Council, North Yorkshire County Council and the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The consultation document launched today includes proposals for:

  • A new town square
  • A new community building featuring an enterprise and innovation centre, a glazed pavilion and shaded canopy
  • New play areas and ‘playful interventions’
The new development would be built on empty land in Shute Road.

The suggestions for improvements to Coronation Park include a community garden, new footpaths and planting, cycle tracks and ramps, better seating, areas for physical activity and sport and better lighting.

A spokesperson for Richmondshire District Council said: “The proposed development would open up access to Shute Road, create a new civic square and community building which leads into improved park and wooded green spaces.

“The new community building aims to provide food and drink establishments with additional space for community use and rented office space.”

Project ideas:


Information about the proposal will also be on display in Catterick Community Library from Monday 30 May until Saturday 18 June.

Drop-in engagement events are also planned where the development team will be available to talk people through the scheme and answer questions.

These sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday 9 June at Catterick Community Library, from 2pm-6pm
  • Friday 10 June at Colburn Village Hall, from 9am-12 noon
