Sites and Premises

County Durham offers a unique selection of investment opportunities, property developments, access to major transport networks and high-tech R&D facilities, all underpinned by a skilled and committed workforce.

A combination of private and public sector investment has created a range of development opportunities throughout the county to suit businesses of all types and sizes.

Development land is also available at a number of locations throughout the County.

Many commercial properties – offices, factory units and warehouses - are available to buy or rent at a range of competitive rates. There are also business and high-tech units to cater for the needs of more specialist companies such as NETPark at Sedgefield with its incubation facilities for innovation-led companies.

Land, building costs and property rentals compare well with other areas of the UK, and Business Durham has the right connections to ensure the completion of any investment.
