A New Local Plan for Darlington - The Draft Darlington Local Plan 2016-2036

A new development plan for long term investment and growth for Darlington is being prepared for the next 20 years, up to 2036. It will set out where significant new development should go and will include policies to protect valued environments and heritage, and ensure liveable places.
