Durham store will be complete by Easter 2013

Developer Terrace Hill has been appointed to build a 50,000ft2 Sainsbury’s store in Sedgefield in Durham.

The development of the store will cost around £10m and will also include a 322-space car park.

Construction work will start later this year and is expected to be completed by Easter 2013.

Philip Leech, chief executive at Terrace Hill, said: “We continue to see good levels of activity in the foodstore sector and we expect the growth of our foodstore development pipeline to deliver significant returns for the business.”

The developer has completed three large foodstore schemes at Bishop Auckland, Manchester and Helston in the last two years.
