Regional housebuilder Homes by Carlton has secured planning permission for a housing development on land at Witton Gilbert, County Durham.

The County Durham-based company plans to build 29 homes on the site, which will be known as Beauford Park. The development will be a mix of three, four and five-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes designed to appeal to families. Work on site is due to start in the coming weeks.

Beauford Park represents an £8 million investment and forms part of a £60 million commitment from Homes by Carlton to deliver high quality homes throughout the North East, creating hundreds of jobs over the coming years.

Simon Walker, managing director of Homes by Carlton, said: “We’re a regional housebuilder and all our homes are bespoke, considering the local community and environment.

“We’re delighted to have secured planning for this new scheme in sought-after Witton Gilbert. We’re looking forward to showcasing our bespoke designs and high specification to prospective buyers in the area. We have been encouraged by the huge amount of buyer interest.

“The scheme is just four miles from popular Durham City, a beautiful city with excellent local amenities. It has continued to develop in recent years with several projects launched to further enhance the city and surrounding areas.

“The development of Beauford Park will deliver much-needed housing to the area, allowing for a wealth of attractive options for home movers.”

Beauford Park is the latest Homes by Carlton scheme with a focus on luxury family homes. The award-winning housebuilder has a series of sites already well under development including Thorpe Paddocks at Thorpe Thewles; Middleton Waters at Middleton St George; The Langtons in Redmarshall; and Eastfields in Whitton.

Having delivered five schemes across the North East, Homes by Carlton is entering its next phase of growth.

Emma Worth, development manager at Homes by Carlton, said: “We are committed to continuing to build upon our reputation of delivering high quality, distinctly designed family homes in sought-after locations. Beauford Park is set to be another example of this commitment.” 

“As we move through 2023 and beyond, we will deliver our pipeline of 500 new homes, and continue to add to it through strategic land acquisition.”
