Cleatlam Lane, Staindrop

A planning application is being prepared for submission to Durham County Council for residential development on land at Cleatlam Lane, Staindrop. Pre-application discussions have been held with Durham County Council and this proposed development has been drawn in line with these discussions to date.

Proposed Development

The current draft proposals include the erection of approximately 48 no. dwellings with associated landscaping. Access will be gained directly from Sudburn Avenue/Cleatlam Lane. In line with Durham County Council’s requirements and national guidance, 15% of the houses will be affordable.

It is anticipated that the development will consist of 2/3 bed terraced proprieties through to larger 4 bed detached homes with good levels of residential amenity. A small area of open space is also shown within the site that also accommodates the route of an existing public right of way that crosses the south eastern corner of the site. It is anticipated that any future development will be a mix of 2 and 2 ½ storey dwellings and make use of a conventional palette of materials to compliment the local vernacular. The draft site layout is shown opposite.

Consultation Event

The scheme is at an early stage and we would therefore welcome the input of the local community to help shape the proposals as they evolve. A public consultation event will be held on Thursday 5th July 2018 between 3:15pm and 7pm at:

Staindrop School Gym

Cleatlam Lane
