Catterick Garrison is a major garrison and town situated three miles south of Richmond in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. The town lies within the Central Richmondshire electoral division of North Yorkshire County Council and divided amongst the Hipswell and Scotton wards of Richmondshire District Council. The town is divided between two civil parishes. The southern part of the town, south of a small stream referred to as Leadmill Gill, is inside the civil parish of Scotton. The northern part forms the greater part of the civil parish of Hipswell. Each parish has its own parish council. It's the biggest British Army garrison in the world, with a population of about 13000 and measuring more than 2400 acres. The original intention for Catterick was to become a short-term camp to accommodate two full divisions with around 40000 men in 2000 huts. However, under plans announced by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in November 2005, the population of Catterick Garrison is anticipated to grow to more than 25000 by 2020, making it the biggest population centre within the local area. Lacking a real town centre, the Garrison gained its first substantial supermarket in 2000, together with a retail park called 'Richmondshire Walk', which also contains a McDonalds, a Poundstretcher plus a Peacocks, among others. 'Catterick Leisure Centre' is a purpose built complex opposite the retail park, opened in July 2009, and it offers a broad spectrum of leisure and fitness facilities including a swimming pool, as well as a fitness centre, and also an adjoining public library.
