News Work Starts £25m Catterick Scheme

A joint venture between Kier Property and Lingfield Securities has marked the arrival of contractors on its £25m Catterick Garrison scheme with a turf cutting ceremony.

The 150,000 sq ft town centre regeneration scheme being developed by Lingfield (Catterick) will involve redeveloping a former sports ground as shops, a multiplex cinema, restaurants and bars, a 60-bed hotel and a 350-space car park.

Over 60% of the retail space has already been let, and the development is expected to create 700 full-time jobs when it opens in June next year.

Kier Property director Tom Gilman said: “The new town centre will reduce the need for long and expensive journeys to shopping centres outside the district.”

Lingfield Securities chief executive Jonathan Hart said the development was timely, as the government has named Catterick Garrison as one of five “super garrisons” around the country as part of its future plans for the armed forces.

He said: “We have taken great care to engage with the local community and the district-wide population during the design stage to ensure the delivery of an enduring and sustainable legacy.”
