The leading Leeds-based property consultancy Dove Haigh Phillips (DHP) has been appointed to market the 65-acre Durham Lane Industrial Park at Eaglescliffe in Teesside.
The park, which has outline planning permission for industrial and warehousing development, is owned by development and investment company Hansteen.
Simon Dove, partner with DHP, explained: “This is a prestigious appointment for us. Durham Lane is an industrial and employment park with tremendous potential, with the capacity to create up to 600 jobs.
“It is superbly located, close to the national motorway network via the A66, Durham Tees Valley Airport and the East Coast sea ports, while also being adjacent to Eaglescliffe Station, which has direct links to London with Grand Central trains.
“At the same time, the development has access to a vast and experienced labour pool and is close to global industry leading businesses like Tata Tetley, Carroll and Meynell and Nifco. Our aim is to see the land developed to its full potential, creating cost-effective, brand-new business premises with a variety of uses.
“The sizes of these new premises will vary and depend on demand. We will be very flexible in fulfilling occupiers’ needs,” added Mr Dove.
Craig Johnson, regional manager of Hansteen in the North East commented: “We are delighted to appoint DHP as marketing agents for Durham Lane Industrial Park. Their expertise and experience in providing agency and development advice will be invaluable and we look forward to working with them to bring this exciting project to market.”
He added: “The market will dictate timescales for the development, but there is a full technical and design team in place to deliver land and buildings swiftly subject to detailed planning permission.”
The development has the full backing of Stockton Borough Council.
