New homes will be built in a County Durham town after a multi-million-pound residential development was given the green light.

The news will now see a mix of 288 three to five-bedroomed bungalows, semi-detached and detached houses built by Miller Homes on a 17-hectare site on the edge of Consett.

The housebuilders, along with North East planning consultants Hedley Planning Services, estimate that the development will create more than 800 jobs and over five hectares of public open space and recreation grounds. Hundreds of thousands of pounds in contributions to public services and almost £3.8m in tax revenue will also be generated.
