Detailed Planning Application

Great Burdon ‘Eastern Urban Fringe’, Darlington

Story Homes is working with Bellway Homes to jointly prepare hybrid planning proposals for c. 200 dwellings in detail and a further 500 dwellings in outline at Great Burdon, Darlington. Our proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the Borough’s housing supply. The proposed development would deliver a mix of detached and semi-detached dwellings and some of these new homes are likely to be affordable. A decision is anticipated during 2018.

Meeting Housing Needs

The site will provide a range of family homes that will help to meet local housing needs, including the provision of new affordable homes within the development or a contribution towards provision elsewhere.

Local Schools

Where there is a proven shortfall in available places in the local primary and secondary schools, we may be required to provide a financial contribution to fund any additional places required as a result of our proposals.

Public Open Space

Our proposals will include the creation of new open space for the benefit of local people and new residents alike.

Highways Improvements

Our proposals will deliver any necessary highways works, with the detailed design and timescales for implementation to be agreed with the highways authority. Our proposals will include a travel plan that will include measures to help reduce reliance on private vehicles.

Economic Benefit

Our proposals will support existing local businesses and help create additional employment through new opportunities for local sub-contractors and the supply chain.
