Plans to redevelop Ripon barracks site

Plans to redevelop Ripon barracks site

Published by Harry Long at 3:04pm 9th March 2020.

Residents in Ripon are being invited to help shape future plans for the city’s barracks site.

  • The Ripon barracks site is being redeveloped into an urban village. 
  • Developer Homes England will engage with local groups to get their views on the development.  
  • The final plans for the site will then go on public display.  

The site is being re-developed by developer Homes England into Clotherholme urban village.

The developer is planning to engage with local groups in the city in April, to get their views on the development.  

It follows a local consultation last year to get the public's views on the development.  


Meetings with key stakeholders, including the city council, will also take place, and the final proposals for the site will go on public display.  This will include further information on the benefits of the development and when it will be built.  

A planning application will then be submitted by Homes England.  

Martin Wilks, the Homes England project manager said:

 “We have decided to carry out additional engagement as part of our ongoing commitment to develop a masterplan that creates a positive new urban extension to Ripon at Clotherholme urban village. 

“It is equally important that the masterplan contributes socially, economically and sustainably to Ripon.  

“It is vital that we make sure that our plans help meet the future housing and employment needs of the city of Ripon, without changing the special character of the city.

“We will refine our proposals with a view to submitting an outline application during this Spring, and we will shortly publish more details of when and where the public information events will happen”.  

Cllr Rebecca Burnett, Harrogate Borough Council cabinet member with responsibility for planning, said:

“It is good to see that there is so much engagement on the future of the barracks site.

“I am delighted the local community is being given such an opportunity to shape the final proposals before a planning application is submitted.

“I am very keen that Clotherholme urban village reflects and integrates with the city’s communities and maximises the wider benefits to Ripon as a whole.”
