The Audi dealership at St James Retail Park in Knaresborough plans to expand by building a standalone repair shop.

Plans lodged with Harrogate Borough Council say the repair shop would cater for cosmetic problems like scratches, chips or dents and create 12 jobs for technicians and managers.

Sytner Group, which runs the Audi dealership, hopes to expand to the rear of the site where it currently stores cars.

The repair shop would be constructed using similar materials to the existing dealership, which is made of metallic silver cladding.

A design and access statement submitted to the council on behalf of Sytner Group says:

“The development will have minimal impact upon the surrounding area and is fully compliant with planning policy.

“The proposals will have no negative social impact but will have a positive impact for the dealership.

“The facility is essential for the continued sustainability of the business at this location. The ability to expand and create employment opportunities is essential to the current and future business models.”

The council’s planning department will decide whether to approve or reject the proposal.
