Ripon is a city located in the Borough of Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Indicative site plan of an 80-bed care home in Ripon, North Yorkshire

The site covers an area of 1.50 acres (0.61 hectares). It consists of two large buildings with areas of hardstanding, car parking and soft landscaping. The existing buildings on the site provide a total of eight business units and employment to 15 persons.

The site is located on Stonebridgegate which is a major route which provides access between Ripon Town Centre and the A61. It is some 500m (8-minute walk) from the town centre and 150m (approx. 2-minute walk) from the newly constructed St. Michael’s Retail Park on Rotary Way off the A61 bypass as well as local amenities to serve the community.

To the east of the site, on the opposite side of Stonebridgegate, is Ripon Police Station and Ripon Ambulance Station, and adjacent to the Aldi development.

The proposed new residential care home building will be set back from the Stonebridgegate and will be surrounded by dense foliage along the northern, eastern, and western site boundaries.
