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.
Aycliffe Business Park Community
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.

Drum Business Park Group
Drum Business Park Group meets on a regular basis to discuss issues facing businesses on the estate and to work together to find solutions. Businesses have benefited greatly from working together to create a louder voice on the estate. Business opportunities have included joint marketing campaigns, networking and business referrals. To join, please contact Andrea McGuigan at Business Durham. To find out more visit the Drum Business Park website.
Bishop Auckland and Shildon Business Community
East Durham Business Network
A new business group to drive forward growth in the area has been launched. East Durham Business Network replaces the Peterlee and Seaham business park groups and will look to engage with employers in a far wider geographical area. It comes after the success of the original Peterlee and Seaham Business Park Groups, which were founded in 2014 and 2016 respectively, and the launch of the area’s flagship magazine, East Durham Business in the summer of 2019.
Fast forward another five years and East Durham Business Network was born, following the successful launch of the East Durham Business Magazine, which replaced the previous PBP & SBP newsletters’
