Major nearby occupiers include:
The scheme has an outline planning consent for 1.7M sq ft of high quality buildings with the biggest single unit footprint available of up to 1,000,000 sq ft on a leasehold or freehold basis.
The site is fully serviced with a new signalised traffic junction and a 24MVA sub station.
Our buildings at Forrest Park will be constructed to a market leading specification that will benefit the occupiers using them, by reducing occupational costs and fulfilling many of the environmental, social and corporate governance ratings in measuring the sustainability and social impact of buildings.

Barberry have worked hard to use the latest environmentally friendly technology to minimise the dependency on fossil fuels, help reduce CO2 emissions and the costs of occupation for occupiers who have the opportunity to procure a renewable electrical energy tariff and drive towards a zero carbon operation.
Forrest Park has been designed with employee welfare at the forefront of the development, providing an exceptional environment in which to work.
Forrest Park occupies a strategic position in the North East of England, located prominently on the A167 to the south of Aycliffe Business Park. Junction 59 A1(M) is immediately adjacent to the site and provides access from the north and south.
The estate is located within County Durham. Darlington lies approximately 6 miles to the south east and Durham 13 miles to the north. Ports including Teesport, Port of Tyne, Hartlepool and Sunderland all within easy reach. Newcastle International Airport and Teesside Airport are both within 30 miles. Darlington Railway Station lies on the East Coast Main Line with direct trains to London King’s Cross, Leeds and Edinburgh.
Exciting proposals are being developed for Phase 1 of Forrest Park in Newton Aycliffe. The site, located to the south of Aycliffe Business Park has outline planning permission for an industrial and trade park.
Barberry and Richardson are bringing forward the first phase of development to provide circa c.71,535 sqm (c.770,000sqft) of employment floorspace along with associated landscaping and parking, that will be built with suitability credentials in mind targeting a BREEAM Excellent rating and EPC A rating. The proposed development will be built to create a high quality development adhering to a market leading developers building specification. The development will provide investment into the North East generating economic growth and thousands of new quality jobs for the North East.
Outline planning permission was granted in 2019 for up to 163,450sqm of employment space with supporting ancillary uses. We will shortly be submitting a reserved matters planning application to agree the details for the first phase of the site which includes the northern and eastern parts of the site. The proposed works will include the delivery of 8 units of varying sizes (circa 71,000sqm in total) with associated parking and landscaping as well as the delivery of the central ecological corridor through the site. This proposed development will deliver a prestige employment development with high quality buildings constructed to a market leading specification. The additional space will help to accommodate growing demand, both from businesses already established within the area and from companies looking to relocate or expand their operations to this strategic logistical point. The development will also utilise the latest environmentally friendly technology to minimise the dependency on fossil fuels, help reduce CO2 emissions and the cost of occupation for occupiers. The existing public footpath and bridleway will be relocated through the site. A planning application is due to be submitted in April 2022.
