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’.
