Start in sight for Durham's £150m Milburngate development

Construction of a multi-million pound living, working and leisure destination in Durham will get underway in the new year.

Updated plans for the £150m Milburngate scheme, revealed in September, were given the go-head this week by Durham County Council.

Phase one of the development will complete 70% of the project, delivering 153 apartments, a 92-bed Premier Inn hotel and more than 53,800 sq ft of office space to support over 400 new jobs.


The office element was added as part of the updated planning application.


Leisure operators at Milburngate will include Everyman, which has chosen the scheme for its first boutique cinema in the North East, along with food and beverage outlets Miller and Carter, Pitcher & Piano and Bar + Block.


Milburngate will also feature riverside public realm to improve connectivity between the railway station, riverside and city centre.
