DEVELOPERS working on a £300m mixed-use site near Durham that boasts both Amazon and Costa Coffee have announced that 100 new homes will be built on the development by the end of 2022.

The Integra 61 scheme, which sits at junction 61 of the A1(M) and is managed by Citrus Durham, revealed today that they’d paired with housebuilder Bellway to bring the new properties over the next 12 months.

The site, a 250-acre plot next to Bowburn village, has already gained outline planning consent, with Bellway aiming to start building on the site in Spring next year, subject to detailed approval from Durham County Council.

The scheme will comprise a mix of three and four-bed houses, with the first units expected to be available from late 2022.

Alongside the houses, Integra 61 now has the potential to create thousands of jobs within the County Durham region, while adding around £2 billion to the regional economy over the next ten years, according to the developers.

David Cullingford, project director for Integra 61 and Citrus Durham, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Bellway to Integra 61 and to contribute to its ongoing success. Providing new, high-quality homes at Integra 61 has always been an extremely important part of our vision to create a thriving, sustainable community on a mixed-use development in a strategic, well-connected location.”

Integra is already home to Amazon’s new two million-square-foot fulfilment centre, which is fully operational. A further one million square feet of employment space will be delivered over the next few years.

In addition to the employment space and new homes, the masterplan for Integra 61 also includes a care home, 70-bed hotel, a family pub/restaurant, nursery, and roadside/retail opportunities. Costa Coffee already has a drive-thru unit on site, and further lettings are expected shortly.

Helen Russell, land director for Bellway Durham, added: “Working alongside Citrus Durham, we are looking forward to building and delivering a prime new homes development. The development will benefit from the extensive local village amenities Bowburn has to offer and the excellent commuter links to the wider North East region.

“Further plans are set to be submitted to Durham County Council in the coming weeks.”
