Selby Garden Centre

Work is set to start on a £1.5m extension of Selby Garden Centre. It will enable the business to double its turnover and create up to 30 jobs.

Malcolm Scott Consultants worked with centre managing director Mark Noble. They prepared plans for 40,634 sq ft of extra space at the Hull Road site.
 
The development includes a 250-seat restaurant and a new 17,000 sq ft open sales area.
 
There’s also a complete refurbishment of the existing shop, and a car park extension. This will create a further 70 car-park spaces.
 
Chris Primett, of Malcolm Scott Consultants, said: “Selby Garden Centre was too small to be profitable.
“These extensions will provide the centre with an enlarged retail footprint which will have a real impact on its performance. It’ll allow the business to more than double its sales over the next five years.
 
“It is particularly pleasing to get permission for over 40,000 sq ft of extensions within the open countryside.
“It shows that the authority is sympathetic to the opportunities such development opens up for the business and the community.”
Selby Garden Centre is a family-run business in Yorkshire. The garden centre has been in operation since the mid-1980s and are now a well established and mature business.
