Lord Lieutenant Visits Milburngate


Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of County Durham, Sue Snowdon was welcomed to Milburngate to view progress on-site at the city’s brand new office, residential, retail and leisure development.

Mrs Snowdon was given a tour of the 6-acre site, meeting with the construction team from contractor Tolent, which is delivering phase one of the development.

Sue Snowdon, Lord Lieutenant for County Durham, said: “This was my second visit to the Milburngate site, and it was impressive to see how the plans are starting to take shape, even in this first stage of construction. Durham is undergoing a number of key developments across the city and Milburngate is going to significantly boost the city’s economy in attracting businesses and visitors to the county.”

Allan Cook, Managing Director of Arlington Real Estate, said: “We were honoured to have Mrs Snowdon visit the Milburngate site whilst it is undergoing its first stage of major construction. It will be a milestone in the regeneration of Durham’s riverside and have a positive impact on the economic and social prosperity of the city and the wider region.”
