Kirkleatham Estate Development Project - The Walled Garden, Catering and Horticultural Academies

The Walled Garden, Catering and Horticultural Academies

This £4.4m project is at the forefront of our current activity. It will bring the grade II-listed historic Walled Garden back into use after 30 years; creating a mix of formal and produce gardens, events spaces, food and retail opportunities. It will provide a major attraction in the north-east that supports employment and training opportunities in the catering, hospitality and horticulture sectors. It will create:

Linked to this is the restoration of the Council's former Kirkleatham nurseries, which will provide a training facility, offering access to employment opportunities for young people, with dedicated horticulture training areas and classrooms for a range of training.

Funding for the project has been secured from the Coastal Communities Fund, with in principle support received from the Combined Authority and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Building work on the Walled Garden is due to begin in Winter 2017, with the facility due to open its doors in Summer 2018.
