The expansion of Catterick Garrison has prompted three established local businesses to launch new branches in the town.

Irvings Estate and Letting Agents have obtained 52 Richmond Road, opposite the Princes Gate Retail Park.

They have also leased part of their building to solicitors Hunton and Garget and independent financial advisers Gale and Phillipson, who are opening a Mortgage Advice Centre.

All three businesses already have branches in Richmond and see the expansion of the garrison town as an opportunity for them.

Michael Irving, Director said “Having had a desire to expand our services into Catterick and the surrounding area for some time, we were very happy to be able to secure the lease on these premises and we would like to thank Herriot Hospice and the MOD for allowing the same.

“Ideally located on this very busy corner,   we felt it was a great location for potential clients to access a wider choice of local services and we are looking forward to building relationships with the community.

“The size of the building has also given us the opportunity to approach two local and equally successful, complimentary businesses in Hunton and Garget and Gayle and Phillipson, Mortgage Advice Centre and for them also to take the opportunity to expand their services into Catterick.

The new branches at 52 Richmond Road.

Lisa Potts, partner at Hunton and Garget, said Catterick was thriving and going from strength to strength.

She added: “We are delighted to be part of that growth.

“As well as providing friendly, high quality legal advice to the local and wider community we also aim to support local projects – we are especially keen to help youngsters in the area.

“It’s such an exciting time for all of us at Hunton and Garget.”

Richard Rutherford, Gale and Phillipson Mortgage Manager, said: “I have lived locally all of my life and there is nothing better than helping local people realise their property aspirations. To be able to expand our mortgage and financial services into Catterick seems a natural progression.

“We provide fee free, independent mortgage advice and having worked in financial services since school with 22 years at Gale and Phillipson I am well experienced in all things mortgage related.”
