Durham County Council’s high ambitions for helping businesses grow

In the three years since she took up her post in Durham, Amy Harhoff has seen “real coherence and focus” in the drive to maximise what she sees as the county’s huge economic potential.

Having adopted its new Inclusive Economic Strategy in December 2022, Durham has reached an exciting stage in its journey, with the development of scalable sites focused around high growth sectors, such as green energy, low-carbon materials, data science, and technology.

Making Durham “the home of high growth capability” is the aim, with the expansion of NETPark, at Sedgefield; the continuing investment in Jade Business Park, at Murton; and the development of Aykley Heads as the catalyst for the new Durham Innovation District all vital pieces in the jigsaw, underpinned by a place based plan of culture led regeneration.
