Bruce Unwin, Chief Reporter (Durham) / Wednesday 17 February 2016 / News


A VISION for the proposed future look of a prominent stretch of riverside in Durham went on show to the public today (Wednesday February 17).
Visual impressions of the proposed Milburngate House regeneration, alongside the River Wear, were displayed with accompanying project information by the consortium behind the scheme, Carillion, Arlington Real Estate and Richardson Capital.
Weeks before the developers hope to submit a formal planning application to Durham County Council they gave the public a chance to run the rule over their ambitious plans to enhance a key 200-metre stretch of Framwelgate Waterside, from Milburngate Bridge to the Radisson Blu Hotel.


It will follow the already approved demolition of Milburngate House, the concrete 1960s-built home of National Savings and Investments department and the passport office.
The proposed scheme represents stage two of the major riverside regeneration, as work reaches a conclusion on the first phase, the Freeman’s Reach office development, on the former ice rink site on the opposite bank of the Wear.
National Savings staff have already re-located across the river, with the Passport Agency workforce to follow in coming weeks.


Arlington Real Estate managing director Allan Cook said it will result in the jobs of 1,200 people remaining in the city centre, relocating in new buildings covering 2.5 acres, while freeing up the 6.5-acre Milburngate House site for redevelopment.
He said the plans for Milburngate House site include a “high quality mix” of residential, retail, office and recreational facilities, including bars, restaurants and a ‘boutique’ cinema.
Today’s (Wednesday February 17) one-day display, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, was the second public consultation staged by the consortium, but also follows negotiations and pre-discussions with interested local bodies and residents’ groups.
“We’ve already had some constructive, positive feedback which has been an important part of the development of our ideas for Milburngate,” said Mr Cook.
He believes the exhibition has allowed local people to see how the consortium’s proposals have evolved, offering the chance to comment to help it deliver what he described as, “the North of England’s newest and most significant waterside regeneration project.”


Carillion development director Neil McMillan said: “We’re on track to turn our plans into reality, transforming the site into a mixed-use destination of regional significance.”

The proposals can also be viewed on the website, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] which went live from today (February 17).
Consortium members expect to submit a formal planning application for the Milburngate House site at some stage during March.

Yes Millburngate House was a product of the day but a monstrosity to most, doubt it will be missed

I have never quite bought the idea thar ugly concrete monstrosities were beautiful architecture. Even the South Bank compared to the Festival Hall next to is awful.

My own personal bugbear about Durham City is reserved for the planners who decided that the 690 bypass had to go through the centre of the old city. The clue is in the name 'bypass' it  should have up gone up by county hall. Destroying the old city has meant less tourists like happens at York.

Planners of the sic 690 bypass take a bow.
