Rok is to develop a £10m office scheme in North Yorkshire aimed at small businesses.

It has bought a site on the St James Business Park in Knaresborough, near Harrogate to develop 55,000 sq ft of offices.

The offices are aimed at small businesses who want the option to buy as well as rent their own accommodation.

The development already has outline planning permission.

St James Business Park is the second scheme announced by Rok in under a month. It is also planning a £15m scheme of 83,000 sq ft of office space at the Firstpoint Business Park, Doncaster.
