Food outlet plan for Talbot Yard stables building in Malton
9:24am Monday 14th October 2013 in News
THE next stage of plans to rebrand a Ryedale town as “Yorkshire’s food capital” have been unveiled.
Proposals by the Fitzwilliam (Malton) Estate to convert buildings in Talbot Yard, Malton, into six food production units have been handed in to Ryedale District Council, with a grass area at the site to become a garden for visitors.
The Yorkersgate yard was used for stables and carriages for the Talbot Hotel in the mid-18th Century, since when it has been used as a builders’ and joinery yard. Documents sent to the council by the estate’s agents said the scheme was designed to retain the area’s “sense of place and charm”.
A planning statement states: “By ambitiously branding ourselves as Yorkshire’s Food Capital, the town will increasingly appeal to the hinterland of Malton as well as visitors nationally,” said the statement
“We will encourage the growing number of foodies to choose Malton above all other destinations. Our ambition is to encourage even better-quality businesses while preserving the character and charm of the town.”
A decision on the scheme is expected to be made next month.
