Maltkiln will be a well-connected and accessible new settlement that recognises the importance of sustainable transport and active travel.

Active travel

The design of this new settlement prioritises active travel options - such as walking, wheeling and cycling - with routes and accessible pathways linking to surrounding public rights of way and neighbouring villages.

New internal horse-riding routes will connect to existing bridleways to extend the opportunities for riding in the surrounding area.

Sustainable transport

Maltkiln will recognise the importance of sustainable travel, being developed around Cattal station as a key transport hub.

The new settlement’s rail link to York, Harrogate and Leeds will create opportunities for both its residents and those in the neighbouring villages for new work, retail and leisure activities. Furthermore, new and improved bus services will link the settlement to neighbouring villages and towns.

A mobility and delivery hub co-located with the existing railway station will offer a range of non-vehicle mobility options for residents and visitors, as well as collection options for deliveries.


Accessibility is paramount to the design of Maltkiln. The new settlement and its amenities will be designed to be suitable for micro-mobility vehicles such as scooters and buggies, as well as more traditional active travel such as walking and cycling, as well as horse riding.
