On behalf of DurhamGate Limited, DPP have submitted a hybrid planning application for outline consent for up to 96 new homes and landscaping as well as detailed consent for the next phase of green parkland space at DurhamGate in Spennymoor.
DurhamGate is now a well-established residential community which is a highly sought after location. The new proposals seek to build on this to deliver additional family homes alongside high-quality landscaping on former industrial land which has not yet come forward for development. The next phase of landscaping will complement the existing parkland space on site which features walking and fitness trails and play areas.
The initial masterplan for DurhamGate was approved in 2009 and DPP have worked closely alongside the client for over 15 years to ensure the successful delivery of the masterplan, including making appropriate and sensitive changes to the masterplan in order to react to changes in the market.
Nicola Crowley, Principal Planner at DPP, said:
Having worked with DurhamGate Limited throughout the development of DurhamGate, we’re really pleased to support with the application for the next stage of the masterplan. It has seen the transformation from an industrial site into a vibrant, mixed-use development that has generated a brilliant community and is a welcome addition to County Durham’s housing requirements.
