Plans unveiled for new multi-million pound retail park in Darlington

The Advertiser Series: Darlington town hall, where planners will discuss the proposals once an application has been submitted Darlington town hall, where planners will discuss the proposals once an application has been submitted

PLANS have been unveiled for a new multi-million pound retail park which could create 150 jobs in Darlington.

Yorkshire-based property developers Opus North have revealed proposals for the £9m project, which would be built on land on Albert Road, next to its junction with North Road and Whessoe Road.

If approved, the park could be open by spring 2016 and would include a discount food shop, a frozen food shop, three other non-food retail units, a drive-thru restaurant and two more units ideal for cafes or sandwich shops.

There will also be free parking spaces.

Residents are being encouraged to have their say on the plans during a public consultation and, once completed, a planning application will be submitted to Darlington Borough Council.

A spokesman for Opus North said: “We’re excited to talk to residents about our plans for a new shopping destination that will improve the retail offer in north Darlington and deliver 150 new jobs.

“The retail park will bring a range of retailers not currently located in this part of town, improving choice and convenience for local shoppers.

“Public consultation allows the team to gain feedback on the plans before they are submitted to the council.

“We will be grateful to know what local residents and businesses think of our proposals.”

The plans will go on show at an exhibition at Northland Methodist Church, in North Road, from 3pm to 7pm on March 26 where members of the project team will also be on hand to discuss the proposals and to answer any questions.

People can also take part in the consultation by emailing info@signetplanning.com.

A Darlington Borough Council spokeswoman said:  "We can confirm we have spoken about this exciting opportunity with Opus North, however, we have not received a planning application to date.  Should one be submitted we will happy to consider it."

The plans come after the multi-million pound Feethams Leisure project was given the go-ahead in December last year.

The project will transform the town’s former bus depot site into a nine-screen multiplex Vue cinema, 80-bedroom Premier Inn hotel, and a number of bars and restaurants, including Nandos and Prezzo.

Work is expected to begin in the coming weeks, with the complex opening in autumn 2015.

If Dixon Borough Council want to get t his right, they should extend the new B6279 road from Haughton Road to Cleveland Street.

On the other hand, won't this make North Road traffic even worse?

If this project goes ahead, it will be at a cost to established retailers and food outlets in the immediate vicinity. Job losses certain..Not to mention more traffic chaos . NOT needed at this location. Too close to Morrisons,
B&M Store and several corner shops who would lose a share of customers.
More litter from fast food etc. and DBC already fail to keep this area tidy.

More choice is good and the jobs would be welcome but all the major supermarkets are suffering a loss of revenue caused by falling consumer spending. So I think most posters are correct it will hit other retailers hard.

You would have thought Northallerton would be a better place for this. There seems to be no discount retailers such as Aldi, Netto, Poundland, Farmfood etc

A nine million pound investment will make people think yes Darlington is moving up and going places.Morrisons sales are down due to the fact they are to dear and people now need discount food stores,or shall we just leave things as they are and let some other town get the investment.

There is still the same amount of money to spend - these types of shops will not be attracting frequent visitors from out of town - so someone is going to lose existing trade.

May be an upgrade in facilities, appearance etc but it is not true that this will create an "additional" 150 jobs- some will certainly be replaced.

Service jobs are just going to pass round and re-distribute the existing pot of money - we need manufacturing or creative jobs to increase that pot of money in the town!

I shop in Aldi and Farmfoods have no issues with the quality. I buy fig biscuits in Aldi for 42p. In Tescos at Northallerton a similar size packet were £1.25 and were no better. The pound shop does stock some rubbish along with reduced sized packs but also has real bargains.

If a development opened up Albert Hill and had Aldi and Farmfoods I would use it but clearly would not go to the current ones. I can't see where the extra demand comes from to support extra supermarkets

As for scrap yards up Albert Hill, if you want cars they don't disappear when you get rid of them. We need scrap yards and they have to go somewhere

It was supposed to have limited access/exit at North Road (if my memory serves me correctly.
Such a road would have greatly alleviated the amount of traffic that has to negotiate it way across the town (West Auckland Rd/Town Centre Ring Road/Yarm Road). As soon as there is the slightest problem it is mayhem.
Because this road wasn't built at the same time as the "Eastern corridor" we are now seeing the result ( a year of chaos on the town centre ring road)
