Burtree Garden Village is located on the northwestern edge of Darlington. The site is approximately 500 acres in total and presents an exciting opportunity to create a new mixed-use sustainable community. In June 2019, Hellens Group and Hellens Residential were awarded Garden Communities status by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for Burtree Garden Village. In early 2020 Homes England, the governments housing accelerator, entered into a Joint Venture agreement with Hellens and took control of just under 200 acres.
The application to the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government for Garden Community status was supported by Darlington Borough Council, who share in the ambition to create an exemplar Garden Village development. Hellens Group will work in collaboration with Homes England to facilitate the development of Burtree Garden Village and are now preparing a planning application for the first phase of the site, with Hellens Residential being a major provider of affordable homes on the site.
