The borough council says innovative plans for Whitby Business Park are nearing completion.

The North York Moors National Park Authority and Scarborough Borough Council asked residents, businesses and other organisations in April and May for their views on what type of businesses and other uses they wanted and what a contemporary business park should look like.

The comments made have been carefully considered in drawing up the latest version of the Area Action Plan for the business park which shows highways, environmental improvements and further development of the site.

The plan shows where the business park could be extended to accommodate more businesses, a hotel and pub, improved paths and landscaping and a better road layout.

This is the version of the plan that the authorities propose to submit to the Government for examination by a planning inspector.

Any comments must be made in relation to the soundness of the plan and further details of how to make comments and view the document can be found at

A copy of the plan and supporting documents together with details of how to comment can also be found at the North York Moors National Park Authority offices; The Moors National Park Centre, Danby; Scarborough Town Hall, Whitby Library and Whitby Tourist Information Centre.

If you are unable to view a copy and are interested in making comments, a paper copy can be provided on request from the Forward Planning team at Scarborough Borough Council.

The consultation period is six weeks and starts on November 6.

Comments on the Area Action Plan should be submitted not later than 5pm on 18 December 2013.
