Nestle are to provide a huge boost to the local economy; along with the jobs, the confectionery giant is to convert nearby buildings into 46 two-bedroom flats, reports the Yorkshire Post.

The company are also planning to create a total of 166 two-, three- and four-bedroom houses, along with accommodation for 100 students and a 55-room care home for the elderly.

Andrew Waller, the leader of the local council, who also used to work in the chocolate firm's research department, told the news provider he was in talks with Nestle about the plans.

"Economically, the re-development of the Nestle site is hugely important, not just for York but for the region as a whole," he said. "It will not only safeguard the existing jobs, it will also create a major boost for employment."

The Nestle factory in York currently employs around 1,800 people, who manufacture chocolate and sweets including Kit Kats, Aeros, Polos, Milky Bars and Yorkies.
