Plans outline 25 new shops and 500 new jobs for York’s Outlet
McArthurGlen have unveiled major expansion plans for York Designer Outlet which could bring 25 new shops and restaurants, as well as 500 retail and construction jobs, to the centre.
The plans also include 630 additional parking spaces and an improved Park & Ride facility. This would reduce road congestion even while adding to the 4.5 million visitors.
Centre manager at York Designer Outlet Mike Thomas said: “We are excited to talk to shoppers and local residents about our proposals which will create an even better shopping experience and also help to resolve the pressures on parking that we sometimes experience.
“By improving and relocating the Park & Ride facility, which has been a huge success story, we’ll also be able to commit to its long-term future on our site – ensuring its environmental and congestion benefits are in place for decades to come.”
Two public consultations are being held on the plans on the 26 and 27 of June.
