Work has started on the development of one of the country’s most attractive business locations at Aykley Heads, in the heart of Durham City and 5 minutes from the A1(M).
Aykley Heads is easily accessible by road and with excellent connectivity within a short walk of both the Bus Station and Durham Rail Station which links to the East Coast Main Line. As well as providing dedicated car parking spaces, the site is well placed to benefit from Durham’s three Park and Ride hubs and cycling routes.
Businesses already established there include Atom Bank, Waterstons and North East Chamber of Commerce.
The business park is proposed to provide up to 400,000 square feet of floorspace and to be divided into an initial two phases, covering 6 development plots which could accommodate 19 buildings.
‘Character zoning’ will be used to create distinctiveness on the park, while green spaces and paths will provide a pleasant environment for workers, residents and visitors alike.
