Durham Cricket hotel proposal information

Our sincere thanks to the almost 200 local residents, businesses and supporters who have attended our recent consultation events about our hotel proposal.

If you missed it you can still let us know what you think by emailing We will also have a display in reception at the cricket ground between the 4th and 19th July.

About the Project

Why are we doing this project

The proposal is to build a high quality, full service, branded hotel on the site at Durham County Cricket ground. There is a long-term undersupply of hotel rooms in the Durham area and this will help address the undersupply bringing local benefits and jobs. The project supports tourism, the business market and the ongoing sustainability of the club.

Who is the Developer

We, Durham Cricket CIC, are the developer.  Following competitive exercises we have appointed the design team and, subject to planning, aim to appoint a main contractor to construct the building with opportunities  for local and regional firms.


We aim to submit a planning application in August.

Why are we asking for feedback

Our architects and engineers and specialists have produced design proposals. We hope you like the designs and welcome suggestions and feedback on the scheme at this early stage before we submit for planning.
