Up to 40 full and part time jobs could be created following full planning permission for four new retail units at Wynyard Business Park.
The new shops, restaurants or cafes at the junction of the A19 with the A689, will serve more than 2,000 office workers at Wynyard Business Park, 1,500 households in the nearby Wynyard Park housing development, and 9,000 people who live within five minutes’ drive of the location, as well as passing trade from the 70,000 cars which use the A689 and A19 daily.
The four new units are expected to attract national quality convenience food stores, coffee shops, restaurants and takeaway operators, as well as bakers, estate agents and other local service providers. The units will be located at the front of Wynyard Business Park, directly off the A689.
Northumberland Estates, which owns Wynyard Business Park, has appointed Leeds-based specialist retail property consultants Barker Proudlove to market the new units.
Anthony Cape, asset manager at Northumberland Estates, says: “In addition to providing excellent office accommodation in a landscaped environment, Wynyard Business Park is already renowned for the quality of its on-site amenities in the shape of a café, nursery, gym, and dental practice. The new retail units will add considerably to the ‘Wynyard Lifestyle’, further enhancing the attractiveness of the business park for office occupiers and complementing our planned development of a pub/restaurant and hotel on the site.”
Guy Munden, development planner at Northumberland Estates, adds: “This new retail development will be a benefit to the local Tees Valley economy and create new jobs for local people. It is another key part of the wider investment and development programme Northumberland Estates has instigated since its purchase of the business park in 2015.”
