Cussins announce long-awaited return to Darlington
Premium housebuilder, Cussins, is expanding its presence in the North East with plans submitted to build 173 homes in Darlington.
The family firm – which is responsible for many of the region’s most prestigious addresses – has developments underway across Northumberland and Tyne & Wear and is thrilled to be making a return to the County Durham town.
It has been 25 years since Cussins built in Faverdale, undoubtedly one of the most prestigious addresses in Darlington.
Cussins, a fourth-generation family business, is primed and ready to start building a selection of two, three, four and five-bedroomed, homes at West Park Garden Village.
The properties will boast both sandstone and heritage brick exteriors and benefit from an abundance of open green spaces which will create a sense of spaciousness and tranquillity.
A new link road will also be built to serve the Cussins development and future phases of the Garden Village. The Village will include 1,200 homes in total and extensive landscaping, footpaths and cycleways as well as a potential school.
Cussins’ Planning Director, David Brocklehurst, said: “It has been an ambition of ours to find a suitable site in Darlington for some time now. We like to develop in exceptional locations which can provide our homebuyers with a high quality of life and West Park fits that bill, perfectly.
“We were attracted to the site by the ethos of the landowner, who has an ambitious vision to create a highly desirable place to live promoting green transport, natural recreation and a socially responsible community, with excellent transport links.”
The Garden Village is an extension to the award-winning 200-acre West Park development that includes West Park Nature Reserve – the first new park to be created in the town for 100 years.
David adds: “Cussins are renowned for their quality marque. We are passionate about delivering meticulously planned developments and are very excited to get started”.”
The homes will have larger gardens, additional space for home working and bi-fold or French doors to make the most of outdoor living.
The site will have a sustainable, urban drainage system and the homes will incorporate a raft of energy saving features, including low-energy lighting, airtight doors and improved insulation.
