About Us

Jet Coast Development Trust is a ‘not for private profit ‘company limited by guarantee, run solely by volunteers, and based at the Gateway Business Centre in Staithes.

In September 2005, Jet Coast Development Trust agreed to manage the Gateway Business Centre located in Staithes Bank Top Car Park, on behalf of Scarborough Borough Council.


The Centre provides seven office/workspaces and a reception area, now developed as a tourist information point.  It is a local hub for business start-up activity within a range of sectors, supported through the Trust’s close relationship with the Borough Council and other business focused agencies.

Up to date, we have been successful in applying for grants of almost £200,000, to undertake a number of projects, such as a mobile I.T. unit which visited rural villages around Whitby for two years, and also a three year Local History  project which published it’s research and also five local heritage walks.

The visitstaithesandrunswick.com website, developed by JCDT, provides opportunities for local businesses to advertise to a wider audience.
