Consettt-based Elddis Transport is gearing up for growth after plans worth close to £1.5m to develop its operations were given the green light by planners.
 
The move will see Elddis transform its recent acquisition of the former GT Engineering site in Delves Lane into new storage and distribution space as part of plans to secure additional onsite capacity for its warehouse operations.
 
Work on the site, which will allow commercial vehicles to unload/load goods as part of an expanding logistics operation, will include a new roof, access doors and improved car parking along with refurbished office accommodation and new training and meeting rooms.
 
The news follows approval earlier in the summer for Elddis to proceed with plans for a permanent new commercial HGV and trailer park in Newton Aycliffe on land off Jowett Way, which offers access to local transport hubs and the main A1M.
 
This is part of a long-term strategy by the firm to improve its current facilities and will see new vehicle and pedestrian access, landscaping, lighting and security measures including CCTV and fencing installed at the park to boost haulage operations.
 
Planning approval comes after Elddis sold its site at Old Pit Lane near the Arnison Centre in Durham to Premcor Estates, which is developing the site to create a new discount food store and retail units.
