A developer has submitted plans to re-develop a former Harrogate Borough Council office.

Hornbeam Park Developments Ltd have put forward plans to create new office spaces at Victoria Park House, accommodation for an estimated 150 employees.

The plans show the 18,500 square feet of space will be turned into grade A offices split across three floors.

Chris Bentley, Managing Director of Hornbeam Park Developments said: “ We are pleased that the Council have supported our vision for an exciting new Grade A office statement building on this site, which will create a new benchmark in facilities for town centre offices and mirror those that are already available on Hornbeam Park.

"We hope to attract the most adventurous, high growth companies to Harrogate with this project.”

The offices are to be arranged so either a single tenant or subdivided into smaller operate offices.

Parking will also be spread across two levels and provide 45 car, 24 cycle and two motorcycle parking spaces.

Work on re-developing the office is expected to generate 120 construction jobs.

The office on Victoria Avenue was sold to the developer in January this year for £1 million.
