Whitby Business Park Area Action Plan

Whitby Business ParkWhitby Business Park

Responsibility for planning at Whitby Business Park lies with both Scarborough Borough Council and the National Park Authority as the National Park boundary runs through the site. In order to provide a consistent and long term plan for the site, a Joint Area Action Plan has been adopted by the two authorities.

The Plan sets out how the Business Park will be developed over the period to 2026. It includes proposals to improve and expand the existing site to accommodate new businesses and sets out highway, infrastructure and environmental improvements. The area covered is the existing built up area of the Business Park together with the land allocated for expansion and the area falls within the Local Planning Authority areas of both Scarborough Borough Council and the National Park Authority.
