The transformation of Durham City’s former Marks & Spencer store into an exciting leisure development was given the go-ahead by councillors on Tuesday 11 April.
Danieli Group announced last year that its plan to create STACK Durham at Silver Street, will ensure that the entire city centre building will be completely utilised.
The proposal will re-purpose the existing building to provide a large range of town centre uses including a coffee shop, food kiosks, bars, roof terrace and space for social, cultural and community events including live music events, dog shows, quizzes and children’s events.
The plan also includes a games room offering a range of interactive gaming experiences including shuffleboard and darts using the latest technology and, when complete, the full scheme will create 176 new jobs.
The scheme was approved by the council’s Durham Area Planning Committee and comes hot on the heels of the recent green light given to STACK Bishop Auckland.Source: BDaily
