£300m Durham industrial scheme set to create 4,000 jobs takes shape with new plans
The next phase of industrial development at a growing County Durham site is set to take shape with a new application.
Citrus Durham has submitted a reserved matters application to Durham County Council for Evolution@Integra61 at its multi-million pound mixed-use scheme at J61 of the A1(M).
Four miles from the City of Durham, the newest phase of the development will include 24 new industrial units totalling 50,921 sq ft and ranging in size from 1,205 sq ft up to 4,625 sq ft.
The units, which will be available to purchase or lease, aim to provide space for local and regional businesses.
Already home to Amazon’s new 2m sq ft Fulfilment Centre, the £300m development will also house around 300 new homes and roadside opportunities including drive-thru’s, a 70-bed hotel, family pub/restaurant, nursery, car showrooms and trade counter and retail units.
It is estimated that the site, which sits opposite the newly upgraded A688 and Durham Services, could create up to 4,000 jobs for the area.
David Cullingford, Project Lead for Integra 61 and Citrus Durham, commented: “The creation of the smaller units makes Integra 61 a truly inclusive scheme, with wide ranging opportunities for businesses of all sizes.
“This further significant investment will generate yet more jobs and we are pleased to be able to support regional occupiers with their growth ambitions and be part of this unique project in County Durham.”
