Planning and design consultancy Barton Willmore, now Stantec, has played its part in helping to boost housing choice for people in County Durham.
The consultancy provided planning advice to developer Vistry Partnerships North East on a scheme which is set to deliver over 300 homes in the Bishop Auckland area. Planning permission has been secured for the £60.4m housing development and construction has started on the site near to Auckland Park.
A total of 331 homes will be built by Vistry Partnerships North East and County Durham-based housing association believe housing. The development follows on from the creation of the 99-home mixed-tenure development called Bishops Park, which was completed last year.
