Development Plots

NETPark was opened on 23rd July 2004, the then Prime Minister, Tony Blair. Since that time, we have experienced much success and we are now an internationally recognised location for science and technology companies in the UK providing a dynamic and supportive environment to accelerate the growth of ambitious, innovative, high tech companies into global markets. We encourage collaborative multidisciplinary links, driving innovation, enterprise and economic prosperity.

Strong public-sector support and immediate land availability have created a unique environment for investment and development driving R&D and technology commercialisation at NETPark.

In 2017 – 2018 NETPark Phase 3 created a 1km road from the A177 offering access to a further 26 acres of development land to create additional space for research and development companies which need room to prototype and scale up to manufacture on site.

The infrastructure works were made possible thanks to a £5m grant from the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Local Growth Fund (LGF) as part of the North East Growth Deal from the Government. The development forms part of the 10-year strategy for NETPark, which includes creating 3,000 jobs and adding another £400m to the region’s GVA.

NETPark is a key location in North East England, we are the only UK science park with two catapults High Value Manufacturing Catapult through The Centre for Process Innovation’s (CPI) national flagship facility for printable electronics and the North East Satellite Applications Catapult.

This, and the presence on-site of two of Durham University’s most advanced research groups combine to offer any technology business investing in NETPark the opportunity to co-locate with two of the UK’s major technology drivers demonstrating the valuable intensive support environment companies will receive when locating here.

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

When looking for premises which would support our growth, whilst we’d looked at other locations nothing came close to NETPark. The office is modern and well serviced and reflects the type of company we are.

Brian Palmer , - CEO, Tharsus

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.

Stuart Wilson, - CEO, Ascarii

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
