Primark is one of the biggest brands in the UK, with numerous stores across the UK - but it will soon be adding another North East branch after plans were approved last month. 

The popular high street brand, which offers homeware, clothing and accessories, is known to have large stores - and its new one at Teesside Park is no exception. 

The Northern Echo has put together everything we know about Primark on Teesside Park:

When were the plans approved?

New plans have been approved this month for a Primark which could come to a North East retail park.

Amendments to plans which could see the store move into Unit 11 in Teesside Park were approved on Thursday (October 19).

What is expected from Primark on Teesside Park?

The plans concern a two-storey extension to the rear with the installation of a mezzanine floor, new shop front, and associated plant and machinery.

The Northern Echo:

It also includes proposals for car parking to the rear and front to include public realm, landscaping and associated infrastructure works.

Plans for a pedestrianised area with a "high quality, usable urban realm" have been "tweaked" to accommodate Primark.

When will the store be opening?

Primark was granted previous planning permission to extend the former Mothercare unit, ready for a 2024 opening.

What other stores are currently on Teesside Park?

TK Maxx, Boots, M&S, Costa, Currys and Hobbycraft are just a few of the names already on Teesside Park.

Businesses such as Tim Horton's and Victoria's Secret have also made their way to the shopping centre.

Are there any other applications to move on to Teesside Park?

Retailers such as Lush and Flannels have both made planning applications concerning potential new locations at Teesside Park in Thornaby over the past year.

They are joined by popular food giant Wagamama, which submitted a planning application in August and has recently erected signage for a new location.

The Northern Echo:

Frasers Group, who is involved with Teesside Park, near Stockton and Middlesbrough, revealed in August that two new leases have been signed at the shopping centre - which will see big moves for four individual retailers. 

Under the plans, Sports Direct will double in size to 40,000sq ft and feature both a GAME and Evans Cycles - as well as Flannels.

B&M garden centre and store has also entered planning permission for a garden centre which is still awaiting approval.
