Further expansion plans at Arnison Retail Centre


Expansion plans to redevelop the existing Homebase unit at Arnison Shopping Park in Durham, to provide two new units comprising 50,000 sq ft and 20,000 sq ft gross internal floor space are progressing. The proposal will also involve the creation of a further two retail units of 12,400 sq ft each on land east of the existing garden centre.

Alongside the property development, a major reconfiguration of the existing main customer car park to increase capacity and functionality is well underway. A second phase of works will seek to modernise the façade of the existing southern terrace of units, including those currently occupied by Nike, Lakeland, Wilko, Next and Outfit.

Arnison Shopping Park comprises 330,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space, more than 1,300 parking spaces and 26 stores. Major tenants include M&S, Sainsbury’s, Next, Outfit, Nike, Boots, Asda Living, Laura Ashley, Lakeland, Halfords, Smyths Toys, Pets at Home and Majestic Wine.
