Plans submitted for new restaurant at former Harrogate municipal offices

Plans have been revealed to transform the former municipal offices in Harrogate to create a new restaurant and offices.

The transformation would see the refurbishment and extension of Crescent Gardens, the former Harrogate Council Municipal Offices to create multi-let office space and roof garden restaurant.

Impala Estates Limited acquired the Former Council Offices from Harrogate Borough Council in January 2020.

Following a public consultation held in October, a full planning application has now been submitted to create multi let office space as well as roof top restaurant, bringing the building back into use.

James Hartley from Impala Estates commented: “I am hugely excited to submit a planning application after what has been a tough year for everybody. I am extremely proud of what is proposed and very excited to hopefully be granted the scheme we have sympathetically designed.

“Our plans will ensure that this high-quality local asset is brought back to use and regenerated to deliver a building that provides not only employment space in the town centre but contributes to a community benefit that keeps Crescent Gardens as a vibrant part of Harrogate.”

Graham Swift, cabinet member for economic development at HBC, said: “When HBC sold Crescent Gardens to Impala Estates, we were impressed by their commitment to bring much needed office space into the centre of town to support the growing and changing economic needs of Harrogate.

“They blended this plan with the use of public space that will make Crescent Gardens and its locality a thriving, community area that boasts flexible, modern offices with functional and attractive public spaces.”
