Scotch Corner Designer Village scheduled to open in 2020

The people behind the Scotch Corner Designer Village say the development will now open in 2020.

Work was scheduled to start on the site this spring, with a provisional autumn 2019 opening planned.

However, with no work visible on the land, there had been speculation that the scheme had been shelved.

This story continues after the adverts:

 

But Simon Waterfield, developer & co-owner of Scotch Corner Richmond LLP, which is behind the complex, told Richmondshire Today that work was still taking place behind the scenes.

He said: “We’re working hard to create the leading shopping and leisure destination in the North of England, and are on track with our plans to open during the middle of 2020.

“We’re having exciting conversations with top retail and restaurant brands, that are keen to join the scheme, and have agreed terms and instructed lawyers on a number of lettings.

“The interested high-quality brands will appeal to both to local and regional customers, as well as attracting visitors from further afield.

“We will be announcing the first new names in due course, later this year.”

The development is estimated to create more than 700 jobs.

84 shops will be built, along with eight cafes and restaurants.

There will be parking for more than 1,000 vehicles.

The scheme will be the fifth largest outlet centre in the UK, say the developers who describe the facility as “a ground-breaking international retail destination”.
