Established in 1976, The Banks Group is a family business, based in County Durham with a range of successful developments across the 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.
For more information about our history, please read our 40th Anniversary brochure here:
Our offices are located in Durham, Yorkshire and Hamilton. Our history was based on meeting the UK’s demand for energy and our industrial customers’ needs for coal and fireclay. We ceased coal extraction in 2021 and over the years we have successfully diversified to develop land for a variety of uses including residential and commercial property, renewable energy generation and storage (including onshore wind, solar PV and battery storage). We also offer quarrying, plant maintenance, transport and infrastructure services.
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.
