Plans lodged for job-creating food warehouse

Plans have been lodged to construct a food warehouse on the Drum Industrial Estate.

If approved, it will support expansion for a nationwide wholesale food supplier and create up to 50 jobs.

The 133,688 square foot logistics warehouse would be built on the 10.8-acres of land at Panther Court, which is the last remaining site to be developed within the industrial estate.

The scheme is put forward in conjunction with Bidfood, which operates a network of 25 sites across the UK and supplies over 10,000 products to 45,000 caterers and food service businesses.

The proposed development will replace an existing Bidfood depot in Gateshead, which has reached the limit of its operational capacity.

Durham Planning Committee will review the plans in due course.

The application can be viewed here.
