As part of the preparation of the New Local Plan, work has been undertaken on exploring future development opportunities at two of the larger villages in Darlington; Middleton St George and Heighington. Draft spatial plans have been drawn up for both of these villages.
The Council is to consult the villages on these draft spatial plans in order to receive feedback from the community and stakeholders. A consultation is scheduled to start on the 4th Dec 2017 until 8th January 2018. During this period you can provide your views and comments to us on the draft plans. On the 4th December the plans and supporting information will be displayed on our consultations page, including a representation form and details of where to send your comments. The comments received will be used to inform the new Local Plan for Darlington and any policies / proposed allocations for the village areas.
Drop in sessions are also to be held in the villages at the beginning of the consultation period. Council Officers will be in attendance with the draft plan for the village and they will be able to answer any questions which you might have. Please see details of the locations and times below.
- Heighington Village Hall 4th December 2017 3pm – 7pm
- Middleton St George Woman’s Institute Hall 6th December 2017 3pm – 7pm
It should be noted that this is an early stage to comment and there will be further consultation on a draft Local Plan for Darlington in spring/summer 2018.
If you have any queries regarding the above please contact Fiona McCall (Planning Officer) on 01325 406476 or [email protected]
