Go North East is relocating its Stanley depot after nearly 100 years in the town, to a new facility in Consett.

The company has received planning approval from Durham County Council to build a new high-specification depot on Hownsgill Industrial Estate in Consett.

The purpose-built 11,585sq/ft depot will include a lean engineering facility to streamline processes and make vehicle maintenance more efficient, a full-recycling vehicle wash and spill-free refuelling system.

The current Stanley depot, which sits on the site of a former ice-rink, is in major need of refurbishment, necessitating the new depot.

Due to open in February 2019, £3.5m will be spent on building and fitting out the new depot which will sit on a 2.23 acres site.
