Homes England Burtree Hellens Group

Homes England has officially entered into an agreement with Hellens Group to bring forward Burtree Garden Village.

The 2,000 home community development, situated in Darlington, would include employment space with the first stage delivering 700 new properties and a public park.

Marie Kiddell, Head of Planning and Enabling in the North for Homes England, said: “The Burtree site provides us with a unique opportunity to create an exemplar development providing not only much needed new homes but also a range of community facilities, employment accommodation along with landscaping and green space.”

Gavin Cordwell-Smith, Chief Executive of Hellens Group, added: “We now look forward to working with all of the key stakeholders on this proposed high-quality mixed-use development which will offer an outstanding place to live and work.”

Homes England will be speaking on our Garden Communities and New Towns Conference to discuss the projects they’re working to bring forward in collaborative partnerships. You can register for the event here:
