HM Treasury staff working at the Darlington Economic Campus are currently sharing space on one floor of Bishopsgate House, as an interim office with the Department for International Trade, the Department for Levelling-Up, Housing and Communities, and the Office for National Statistics.

There are 4 carparking spaces available at Bishopsgate House for Darlington Economic Campus staff. HM Treasury does have access to the parking provision, but no reserved spaces. There are spaces available in public carparks that are a short walk from Bishopsgate House.

All HMT Treasury staff, including those in the Darlington Economic Campus, are strongly encouraged to use public transport for official journeys, and we talk about this as part of the corporate induction for new starters. The Darlington Economic Campus is conveniently located in walking distance of local amenities within the town, bus stops and the train station.
