Established in 1976, The Banks Group is a family-owned, County Durham based business with a range of successful developments across the Midlands, North of England and Scotland. We have a long-held commitment to a common goal of Development with Care – an approach that commits us to work safely, responsibly and sustainably. We care about what we do and the way that we do it and we strive to meet the reasonable expectations of everyone who has an interest in our business.
Our talented team operates from offices in Durham, Yorkshire and Hamilton. Whilst our history was based on meeting the UK’s demand for energy and industrial customers needs for coal and fireclay, we ceased coal extraction in 2021 and have successfully diversified our work to develop land for a variety of uses including residential and commercial property and renewable energy generation and storage (including onshore wind, solar PV and battery storage). Building on our expertise in surface mining we also offer quarrying, plant maintenance, transport and infrastructure services to other customers.
The Banks team sees projects through from inception to completion including gaining all necessary planning permissions and consents. Banks unique development with care approach ensures that our developments have a positive long term effect on the environment and the local communities that host our developments.
