Land at Station Road, Middleton St George


Status: Submitted

Stage: Outline planning application


Story Homes has submitted outline proposals to build up to 260 high quality new homes on this site. Our proposals would create a sustainable and integrated development that would make an important contribution to the Borough’s housing supply. Full details of the submitted application can be viewed on Darlington Borough Council’s website using the application reference 16/00976/OUT. Whilst this application  focusses on the principle of development, it does not provide or seek approval for any detailed design proposals such as house types, landscaping and materials. Story Homes is therefore proposing to submit a full and detailed application on the same site area for 260 dwellings which will, in effect, supersede the outline application as well as providing a range of additional design information for the Council to consider. We propose a number of different house types, including a mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bed properties, 52 affordable homes, with the layout including Public Open Space, landscape and water course buffers and Public Right of Way connectivity, and access into the site would be provided off Station Road.


  • Our proposals will include landscaping and ecological improvements such as the creation of an ecological buffer zone.
  • Our proposals will support existing local businesses and help create additional employment through new opportunities for local sub-contractors and the supply chain.
  • Our proposals will include the creation of new open space for the benefit of local people and new residents alike.
  • The site will provide a range of family homes that will help to meet local housing needs, including the potential provision of new affordable homes within the development or a contribution towards provision elsewhere.
  • A financial contribution shall be proposed to Darlington Borough Council to mitigate the impact of an increase in pupils in the local area.
