Property description


Murton is located in East Durham just off the A19 north-south trunk road and lies a few miles from Seaham, Peterlee and Easington. The Dalton Park Outlet Mall with a variety of trade outlets, Cineworld multi-screen Cinema, pub diner, drive-thru and restaurants lie between Murton Village and the A19 to the east.

A vast amount of new housing has been constructed in Murton over the last decade with planning consent granted for another 1,500 homes recently. The former Coke works site to the south is also being redeveloped for Jade Business Park commercial warehouse and industrial units.


The development is situated in the heart of the Village on Church Street, the main road, linking Hetton-le-Hole and Easington Lane to the west with the A19 and the port of Seaham to the East.

The site has a prominent main road position at the bottom of Woods Terrace, the existing neighbourhood retail area, which is semi pedestrianised and has restricted access and from where the Co-op has relocated.

The Dalton Park Outlet Mall lies within 1 km to the East where there are a number of factory and trade retail outlets as well as a Cineworld multi-screen Cinema, restaurants and pub diner together with a new Morrisons Food Superstore. Travel distance to Newcastle (20 miles) to Durham (10 miles) and to Middlesbrough (23 miles).

The new 1 million sq ft Jade Business Park, estimated to create 2,500 jobs, also lies within 1000m with easy pedestrian access where phase 1 of 155,000 sq ft is already open and trading with Sumitomo Electric Wiring and Corehaus already in occupation.


Phase 1 comprises 5,500 sq ft of new retail accommodation in two units of steel frame construction with brick and cladding panel walls and a cladding roof covering recently constructed including 4,500 sq ft Co-op Convenience Food Store and a second unit of 1,000 sq ft with 19 car spaces including two Electric Charge points operated by Instavolt.


Ground floor - 92.90 sq m (1,000 sq ft)
