Citrus Durham has appointed Savills to market a prime residential site for up to 120 homes at its flagship, mixed-use site next to Junction 61 of the A1(M), just next to Bowburn.

Proposals for the Integra 61 project have already been approved for around 300 homes, more than 3 million square foot of employment space, and a 70 bedroom hotel, a family pub restaurant, a nursery, car showrooms and a number of shop unites.

Phase one of residential development at Integra 61 is being delivered by Persimmon, with the £18 million Millbeck Grange scheme well underway and the first residents of the total 170 homes moving in last year.

Phase two is on the northern part of the site which is surrounded by Bowburn Beck, existing and new housing and is connected to the centre of Bowburn Village by a newly constructed footpath.

Savills is inviting offers by noon on Friday, May 28.

Located 4 miles away outside of Durham, leaders say it is will connected for residents and will have a range of amenities and job opportunities on the site itself, making it a “highly sustainable location.”

The sale of the residential plot follows on from the recent announcement that Citrus Durham was awarded planning consent to deliver a new business hub, [email protected], which will add up to 23 flexible units available to purchase or lease.

David Cullingford, project lead for Integra 61 and Citrus Durham, said: “The residential element of Integra 61 makes an important contribution to the wider project and to meeting the housing requirements in County Durham.

"We are creating a new community with a wide range of amenities in a safe and attractive environment that’s well connected and of a high quality.

"We are looking forward to engaging with the successful party to bring forward this next phase of development.”

David Craig, Associate Director at Savills, continued: "Integra 61 has proven to be a highly attractive location from a housing and commercial perspective and the continuation of its progression will further add to its vibrancy and appeal.”
