The developers delivering the regeneration of Durham’s Riverside have installed a unique public art installation at Freemans Reach. Unveiled on the eve of the Lumiere Durham Light Festival, the installation celebrates the history of water power in the city.
The development consortium behind the regeneration of Durham City’s Riverside will embark on the next significant step of its masterplan after Durham County Council granted permission for the development of Milburngate.
A retired Durham County Council worker who witnessed the construction of Milburngate House in the 1960s has helped start the demolition of the building, which will pave the way for the creation of a premium, mixed-use development.
The development consortium leading the regeneration of Durham City’s Riverside has appointed specialist contractor Thompsons of Prudhoe to undertake the demolition of the old Milburngate House building.
