Members of the public are being invited to have their say on a possible 25 million pound makeover for the town centre of Catterick Garrison which could create up to 700 new jobs.
The full plans will be unveiled to the public at the beginning of May - including turning the former sports ground on Gough Road into several shops, a five-screen cinema and a number of restaurants, cafes and bars.
The plans could also see a 60-bed hotel with 400 car parking spaces built on the site.
We’re looking forward to liaising and having a constructive dialogue with local people about what they think of our proposals to bring retail and leisure facilities to the heart of Catterick Garrison’s town centre.
"We believe our proposals will play a vital part in supporting local businesses and adding to the prosperity of the wider area.
“These are exciting times for Catterick Garrison with the Army naming it as one of five major UK bases in which it will concentrate its resources.

"In addition, the upgrade to the A1 and new junction close to the new town centre will greatly improve accessibility.
“We have taken great care to ensure our proposals will complement the local area and are in line with Richmondshire District Council’s Core Strategy of establishing shopping and leisure facilities in the principle towns to retain expenditure in the district.
"This, in turn, will reduce the need for long and expensive journeys to shopping centres outside the district.”
