Plans revealed for 400 homes at new Durham neighbourhood development

Plans have been revealed for 400 homes at a new neighbourhood development in Durham.

Bellway, based in Newcastle, has announced that it is drawing up plans for up to 400 new homes at Sniperly Park, a new neighbourhood outside of Durham City.

The neighbourhood is set to house approximately 1,700 homes once completed, with Bellway’s plans spanning nearly 50 acres.

As well as the new homes, the Sniperley Park development is set to create a new primary school, a local community centre and more than 60 acres of public open space, wildlife habitats, playing fields and community woodlands.

Oliver Wray, Sales Manager for Bellway Durham, said: “We are working towards bringing much-needed new housing and new jobs to the area in drawing up our plans for Sniperley Park.

“The development will include a mix of houses and apartments ranging in size from one to five-bedrooms, which will appeal to a variety of homebuyers in Durham.

“Residents will benefit from the site’s location less than two miles from Durham’s historic centre, while being surrounded by plenty of scenic green open space.

“Up to 25 per cent of the new homes within our development will be offered as affordable homes for rent and shared ownership, including accessible homes and housing suitable for older people.

“We are now in the final stages of preparing the planning application and look to be able to submit this to Durham County Council in the near future.”
