A principal contractor has been appointed to bring forward a new retail and trade park within Wynyard Business Park, which will be anchored by a Sainsbury's superstore. Hebburn-based contractor Castle will bring forward the scheme, on behalf of Northumberland Estates, which comprises 52,000 sq ft of retail space and a 45,000 sq ft trade park at the site in Stockton. There will be seven units built as part of the development, including the 46,000 sq ft superstore, alongside a Starbucks, Howdens, Screwfix and Doves. Other key retailers are expected to take space at the site.Work is expected to commence this month, with the site being fully operational by June 2025.


Peter Dalby, development manager at Northumberland Estates, said: "We are delighted to have obtained planning permission for the first phase of the Wynyard Retail and Trade Park. This is a key development for Northumberland Estates which will deliver consumer choice and economic growth in the region. As we move into the construction phase, we are looking forward to working with Castle to deliver the project to a high specification."


Nick Atkinson, Director at HTA Real Estate added “ We are delighted to have been appointed as letting agents on the Trade Park element of the scheme which has already generated strong interest in several of the units. The location just off the A19 and the strong mix of business and residential properties in the area has added to the level of interest from occupiers”.
