Aykley Heads Business Park


Work has started on the development of one of the country’s most attractive business locations at Aykley Heads, in the heart of Durham City.

Aykley Heads is easily accessible by road and with excellent connectivity within a short walk of both the Bus Station and Durham Rail Station which links to the East Coast Main Line. As well as providing dedicated car parking spaces, the site is well placed to benefit from Durham’s three Park and Ride hubs and cycling routes. Existing tenants include Atom Bank, Waterstons and North East Chamber of Commerce.

The business park is proposed to provide up to 400,000 sq ft of floor space and to be divided into an initial two phases and six plots.

‘Character zoning’ will be used to create distinctiveness on the park, while green spaces and paths will provide a pleasant environment for workers, residents and visitors alike.

Work has already started on the first phase with the creation of 37,673 sq ft of flexible office space within a three-storey building and 60 car parking spaces to the north of the site.

Design and build options are available on the remaining site.



Size: 6.8 ha
Proposed master plan output: Over 400,000 sq ft with an initial spec build office of 37,673 sq ft
Site requirements: Occupiers and investors
Address: Durham Constabulary Visitor Car Park, Durham DH1 5TT, UK
