Developer applies to build 80 new homes in Newton Aycliffe

The Advertiser Series: Plans have been submitted for an 80-home development near Travellers Green in Newton Aycliffe Plans have been submitted for an 80-home development near Travellers Green in Newton Aycliffe

PLANS have been submitted for 80 new homes on a disused garden nursery in Newton Aycliffe.

Gleeson Homes and Regeneration has applied for planning permission to build a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached properties on a site near Travellers Green.

All of the houses will have a minimum of two off-street parking spaces and ample gardens.

The 5.3-acre site was previously a garden nursery and has been vacant since 2006, when the business closed and associated buildings were demolished.

It is often targeted by flytippers and has become a hotspot for anti-social behaviour.

The application, now in the hands of Durham County Council planners, has attracted two letters of objection from nearby residents, with one woman expressing concerns about additional traffic on an already busy bus route.

But a transport assessment, carried out to accompany the application, has concluded the development would have an “insignificant effect” on existing roads in the area.

Within the application, Gleeson Homes and Regeneration has also stated: “The applicants have undertaken considerable pre-application dialogue with architects, local residents, consultants and relevant officers at the council to ensure the scheme not only delivers high quality design but also responds to the aspirations of the local community.”

The public has until Friday, August 1, to comment on the application at durham.gov.uk

"All of the houses will have a minimum of two off-street parking spaces and ample gardens."

Will there be any greens/open spaces, because the area concerned hardly looks big enough for 80 houses to me.

Look at the way the town was designed originally with plenty of grassed areas, that's what makes areas pleasant to live in, not all squeezed together to get every last inch to make as much money as possible for the developer.

This is brilliant for the area - new builds help first time buyers to easily get on the property ladder and provide employment opportunities whilst they're being developed.

I do see your point regarding the grasslands though - let's just hope the developers have taken it into account
