STATEMENT: FAVERDALE GARDEN VILLAGE

Nick Whittingham, Land Director at St. Modwen said:

“The community consultation is an opportunity for local residents to give their feedback on the proposed development plans and influence the layout of the scheme. Our proposal for a residential-led mixed-use development on land at Faverdale 58 and Whessoe Road would deliver a broad mix of housing to help meet the housing needs of the region, including a significant amount of affordable housing.

“The views of  local people are very important which is why we recently held a consultation event to share our proposals, meet local people and listen to what they have to say. We have received positive feedback from the people who attended the consultation.

“This is just the start of the process as we consider submitting an outline planning application to Darlington Borough Council. The land already has the benefit of planning consent for up to 250 houses and a million sq ft of employment space.”
