In 2015, Harworth demolished the redundant coal plant and planning permission has since been secured for an anaerobic digestion plant which will supply gas to the grid when developed.
The site has – and is still currently – been used for the storage of materials from local infrastructure improvement works such as the Tyne Tunnel and Testos roundabout.
Talks are ongoing with the local Councils to recognise the potential of the site to complement the neighbouring approved first phase of the IAMP, which also adjoins the Leamside rail line.
Opportunities & Enquiries
Companies looking to secure long term development on the site, after the current short-term uses have ceased (from 2021), should initially contact the managing agent, listed above, for further information.
