Work has started on construction of 14 new business units for SMEs in one of Darlington’s fastest growing economic districts.
Commercial property developer Priority Space is behind the £2.7m speculative development at Yarm Road industrial estate and business park. It will be built by Darlington-based Wharton Construction and completion is expected late August.
Leader of Darlington Council Heather Scott OBE was invited to the official ground-breaking on the site and welcomed the development which lies within the town’s Eastern Growth Zone.
Cllr Heather Scott said: “This project is part of a much wider economic regeneration currently underway in Darlington.
“The relocation of a number of government departments to the Treasury North campus is not only attracting a range of support services but has put this borough on the map as a desirable business location.
“As a result, there is high demand for good quality units to support the needs of SMEs, which play a crucial role in delivering a prosperous local economy.”
All units are available for sale or lease and enquires are now being handled by Richard Scott of Savills and Jonathan Simpson of Connect Property North East who commented “ It is excellent news that we have finally broken round on this development, we are only weekends are ground works and already we have strong interest in the units”
The Yarm Road Interchange business park is located on the B6280 Yarm Road next to Darlington Retail Park and about two miles from Darlington town centre. It has easy access to the A67 and A66 connecting it to the Tees Valley motorway network
