Business Durham has helped create several thriving business park communities, enabling like-minded businesses to network, share knowledge and speak with a united voice. These communities are led by businesses in their locations and they hold regular events and networking sessions.
The private sector-led Aycliffe Business Park Community represents the largest industrial estate in the North East and is very active, holding regular networking events and business-led best practice training sessions and an annual awards ceremony. For more information see http://www.aycliffebusinesspark.co.uk
Peterlee Business Park group is made up from companies located across Peterlee’s three industrial estates and two business parks. The group aims to share best practice, exchange views, highlight issues and opportunities and promote the successes achieved by its business park community. It is passionate about raising the profile of Peterlee to a regional and national audience, to highlight that Peterlee is a great place to do business.
