Renaissance Market Town
The Renaissance Market Town (RMT) initiative was established in July 2002 by Yorkshire Forward, the Regional Development Agency (RDA) for Yorkshire and Humber. It was a ten-year plan designed to support sustainable rural towns in the region. The ultimate aim was to create attractive ‘rural capitals’ within the region where people are able to live, work, invest and visit. Through the creation of a Town Team Delivery Plan, sponsored by the RDA, Renaissance Knaresborough (RK) was established in 2005. RK is not-for-profit organisation, it has long provided necessary framework, structure and organisation to reinforce the role of Knaresborough as a service centre for residents, businesses and for the surrounding rural communities.
