Landscaping of business park proves a winner.

Newcastle Business Park's landscaping has won it the Best Business Park category in this year's Northumbria in Bloom awards.

The trophy was given to John Walder, of Lamb and Edge chartered surveyors, who manage the business park, and Sones Landscaping, who supervise and maintain the planting.

The Lord Mayor of Newcastle, Margaret Carter, who presented the award, said: "The planting here brings the entire area to life. The autumn colours of the trees are particularly wonderful just now.

"Many congratulations to Newcastle Business Park for all the hard work it puts into keeping it green and attractive at all times."

This is the third time Newcastle Business Park has won Northumbria in Bloom's Best Business Park Award. The park has won many awards since it opened, including the national RICS award for best urban renewal project in the country.

John Walder said: "What a fantastic honour it is to win the Northumbria in Bloom award. It is exactly 10 years ago that the business park was last recognised by the competition.

"We are delighted that the superbly maintained landscaping has impressed the judges once again. It has certainly been a major factor in helping to attract top class firms to the Newcastle Business Park."

The 60-acre business park is generously planted with shrubs, trees and flower beds, which are maintained to provide all-year colour and interest. Jim Campbell, operations manager of Sones, said: "There are few urban business developments with so much green space."
