Outline planning permission for 5 detached dwellings was granted on 7 September 2022. All matters are reserved with the exception of the access to the site. An application for the approval of reserved matters must be made before 6 September 2025.

The scale of the proposed dwellings is yet to be determined and this information will be included with the reserved matters application, however it is expected that they will closely reflect the scale of the adjacent dwellings located in the immediate area of the site. The proposed layout indicates that the plots will have a generous amount of amenity space with large gardens and parking areas.

Full details of the planning application can be found on Durham County Council’s planning portal reference DM/22/01580/OUT.

The site is currently used for equestrian grazing. The field to the south of the site will remain as a grass paddock.

Access will be via the existing access point located off the rear lane behind Oswald Terrace. This is shaded blue on the Site Plan. The access will be widened and the existing lamp post relocated.
