On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

To find your Councillor or to view minutes, meetings and agendas please visit the North Yorkshire Council website.

There are three major business parks located within the Borough of Scarborough; Scarborough Business Park, Whitby Business Park and Hunmanby Industrial Estate, all providing high quality accommodation for a range of businesses.

Scarborough Business Park

The largest of the Borough's parks located three miles south of Scarborough Town Centre.

Adjacent to the A64 highway providing excellent road links to the A1 and M1. Major companies located on the park include McCain Foods, York Potash, Plaxtons and Cooplands & Son.

Having recently undergone a £9.6million scheme, delivered in partnership by Caddick Developments, Scarborough Borough Council & other key partners, the park has now doubled in size.

The development has opened up over 100 acres of serviced industrial development land for industrial units, starter units, office units, car showrooms, small retail units and restaurant and hotel facilities which could see over 1,000 new jobs created over the next 10 years.

The new park also boasts the provision of Next Generation Broadband capable of providing 100mb of Broadband speed providing downloading and surfing speeds more than three times faster than some of the biggest cities in Britain.

Joint agents for the new site are Iain Simpson & Co, telephone 01944 738888 and Jones Lang Lasalle, telephone 0113 244 6440.

Gladman Developments have also completed the building of a 90,000 sq ft office development featuring two-storey, high specification office units ranging in size from 2,250 sq ft to 6,100 sq ft.
