Scotch Corner joins the Blue Diamond Portfolio

A new £16mn garden centre development will be built alongside the Scotch Corner Designer Village in North Yorkshire, after planning permission was granted by Richmondshire District Council.

The Village, which is to incorporate 92 shops and ten restaurants or cafes, is set to open in 2023, after plans to open last year were set back by the coronavirus pandemic and ensuing lockdowns.

The development, which it is hoped will generate 180 full and part-time jobs, will include indoor and outdoor sales areas, a café, restaurant and car park.

Blue Diamond Garden Centres will operate the new garden centre, extending their existing portfolio of 30 outlets around the UK and Channel Islands. It will be the biggest Blue Diamond garden centre to date.

The planning applicants stated that their new garden centre would deliver greater consumer choice to local residents and explained that: “The development will be operated by a well-established and high quality national retailer that can be expected to provide good quality training and development for staff.”
