This planned town from the 1960’s is a well established residential area, but also has a sizeable commercial centre with a wide offering of industrial and office buildings which benefit from ready access to the regional road network lying immediately east of the A189 and north of the A191 which links to both the A19 and A1. The subject property is located in a highly visible roadside position on Northumbrian Way, within close proximity to the Killingworth Centre.
