Burtree Garden Village is located on the northwestern edge of Darlington.
The site is approximately 500 acres in total and presents an exciting opportunity to create a new mixed-use sustainable community.

The Garden Communities status awarded to the proposed development gives us the opportunity to deliver a high quality development and landscape design that respects the existing landscape setting, creating a strong connection between the new community and the surrounding environment. Burtree Garden Village will also help create a new community where people can live, work and exercise, striving for a healthier and a more sustainable future.
Wherever possible we are looking to embrace the existing landscape setting and character. Our aim is to have a landscape led development where homes and development will complement the existing landscaping and ecology features of the site.
There will also be a significant provision of open space integrated within the development, including a number of village greens, landscape and habitat corridors and a centrally located park.
