This website has been created to provide updates on the proposals for a new development on the former Rigid Paper Mill site on Denison Road in Selby.


The former Rigid Paper Mill site lies to the south east of the centre of Selby. The site is bound by the Selby Canal to the west, River Ouse to the north and Denison Road to the south.

Manufacturing ceased at the Paper Mill site in 2009. The company still operates within the area at a new facility further down Denison Road, less than 1km east of the site. The warehouses on the site were demolished in 2012 and the site has since been vacant.

Outline planning permission for a mixed use development with 300 homes was granted in 2013, this permission is now due to lapse and Rigid Paper has commissioned a new team to submit a new outline application for the site.

Meet the Team

Rigid Group Ltd, the owners of the former Rigid Paper Mill site, have commissioned a team of consultants to bring forward the new planning application for the site.

The team, consisting of Berrys (Planning and Development Management), URBED (Urban Design and Masterplanning) and BWB (Highways and Environmental Consultancy) have been tasked with breathing new life into the proposals to create an exemplar new neighbourhood for Selby.

The team are drawing up a masterplan for Selby, with a view to submit the scheme for planning in Summer 2017, following a consultation with local people and businesses on the emerging proposals.
