Gazette & Herald: Plans for Malton livestock market to be shown in exhibiton Plans for Malton livestock market to be shown in exhibiton

PLANS for a livestock market, business park and about 300 homes in Malton are to be updated at an exhibition next week.

Following a public consultation in December, the interlinked £17m package of development proposals will be on display at the Wentworth Arms, in Old Malton, on March 26, followed by an open meeting of Malton Town Council.

The plans, which aim to create 600 jobs, have been proposed by Commercial Development Projects – part of the Marshall Group of companies, the Fitzwilliam Trust Corporation and the Malton and Ryedale Farmers’ Livestock Market Company Ltd.

They include the relocation of the livestock market toa purpose-built facility on land adjacent to Eden Camp, along with a new business park which would, in part, be funded by housing development on three sites, land north of Pasture Lane and north of Rainbow Lane, in Malton, and land south of Westgate, in Old Malton.

Mark Nicholson, on behalf of the Fitzwilliam Trust Corporation, said: “Following the public consultation last year this exhibition will provide the opportunity to explain to local residents the proposals in greater detail.”

A planning application for the development is expected to be submitted in the next few weeks.

Councillor Martin Dales, from Malton Town Council, said: “I am very pleased that the Fitzwilliam Trust Corporation have agreed to mount an exhibition to talk about their proposals for the relocation of Malton Cattle Market and associated proposals in the Old Malton area.

“ It is renowned for being an area of regular flooding and also has too much traffic already so I am hoping that they have now come up with some solutions to allay the fears of local residents.

The exhibition will be held from 1.30pm to 5.30pm at the Wentworth Arms followed by an open meeting of Malton Town Council at Ryedale House, starting at 6.45pm.

Good idea to consult people if that's what it is. There was always going to be a trade off somewhere along the line to raise funding for the cattle market relocation. It will be good to see this project under way, and hopefully the site will be attractive to other businesses who want to co-locate. The area needs all the new jobs it can get.

Surely there's plenty of room for an auction mart next to the bacon factory, and plenty of other sites available for the rest on the expanded York Road industrial estate? Makes more sense than to put in 35 acres of concrete on low lying ground prone to flooding and then drain it into Old Malton, I would have thought.

there's no spare land at the side of the bacon factory

It's good to consult but Old Malton isn't particularly accessible. It would have been better to hold the event in Malton.

Employment levels are high in Ryedale (98%) but Malton needs 100 homes per year to fit the local plan. We need well paid jobs ideally to bridge the affordability crisis locally but there is no real reason for professional firms to locate here. The farmers and factories are largely employing foreign workers by observation. The main justification can only be to help with the national housing crisis but we seem to be getting well ahead of schedule with the estate planning 800 and hundreds under way or completed in Norton, Broughton Manor, Cheesecake farm, etc. All built by massive outside companies so not really nourishing the local economy, except for the short-term bribes the council can extract
