The development will deliver 600 new homes and other elements including offices, restaurants, bars and a hotel.

Jon Kenny, development director at Commercial Estates Group said: “The existing status of Darlington and its strategic location and profile alongside the new college creates a great opportunity to develop a high quality scheme.”

David Mullins, managing director of Yuill Homes, said: “A great deal of work has already been undertaken to get where we are today and this careful preparation will result in a high quality and sustainable development.”
