A new £6 million pound business park has been completed in Washington.
It has been passed to Sunderland City Council ready for tenants to move into in April after being developed with support from the European Regional Development Fund.
The enterprising venture has attracted local businesses looking to invest and it plans to create at least 200 new jobs in the city. The new park is looking to encourage businesses of a low carbon economy, particularly in the training, consultancy, IT networking and warehousing sector.
Deputy Council leader Harry Truman thinks this is good business for the people of Sunderland.
