Merchant Anglo have this week submitted a new planning application for their next phase at Merchant Park. To be called Station Place, the £4.8 million scheme will provide 50,333 sq ft in 10 new starter units, in sizes from 3,000 sq ft.
Geoff Hunton, Director of Merchant Anglo states “We realised there was a shortfall of modern fit for purpose units in Newton Aycliffe to support new and growing business in conjunction with our partners Business Durham. At Merchant Park, home of Hitachi, we want to be able to support business of all sizes and hopefully one day, when the business park is full, they can all support each other.”
Sarah Slaven, Interim Managing Director at Business Durham said: “We are delighted to be working with Merchant Anglo to bring forward this exciting development. I’m sure Station Place will very quickly become a key part of the wider Aycliffe Business Park, which is already the biggest industrial estate in the North East.
“As the economy moves into the recovery phase we are working with partners to create an environment where businesses can thrive and grow. High-standard facilities, such as these, are a fantastic opportunity for local companies to find space to expand while staying in the region.”
Adrian Goodall of Rokeby, development managers for Merchant Anglo advised “We hope to start on site in October this year, with units available from late summer next year.”
