Darlington Community Field

In 2014, Neil Robson of Ward Hadaway advised residents who live around Bellburn Lane Field in Cockerton East, Darlington, which is publicly owned and has been used by locals for 100 years. Central to the Council’s defence against the charge that the field was an essential facility, was that only half of it would be developed. Now, a decision which was due to be made in December has been delayed by a new proposal to increase the development from 32 to 50 new homes. Residents who already felt that their concerns had not been listened to, now fear even greater disregard than previously.
