Housing plan for derelict school at Gainford recommended for approval



A DERELICT boarded-up building which has become an eyesore at the gateway to a Teesdale village could be converted to housing if plans are approved next week.

For almost two decades the old St Peter's School - a former orphanage, school and nursing home - on the edge of Gainford has stood empty.

It was built in 1899 initially as an orphanage and then became a residential school for about 100 pupils but closed in 1983.

Durham County Councillors give support to emerging Eleven Arches project

COUNCILLORS have been given their first glimpse of the Eleven Arches project since diggers first pulled onto the site in early September.

Work is now well underway at the former Flatts Farm site, near Bishop Auckland, with the dream of creating a major historical tourist attraction now becoming a reality.

The vast scale and ambition of the project cannot be ignored. Huge muddy swathes sketch out football-pitch-sized areas soon to be filled with a seven-and-a-half acre stage, an artificial lake and an 8,000 capacity seating pavilion. An equally huge space has also been cleared to make way for the venue’s other visitor attractions.

Entering from the A689 between Bishop Auckland and Crook, visitors’ views of the stage and lake will be hidden by a shallow hill until moments before they reach their seats, increasing the drama of the experience.

on Thursday (October 29) Durham County Council officials visited the emerging £31m visitor attraction, which will depict 2,000 years of British history seen through the eyes of the North-East. A spectacular night show, it has recruited 1,200 volunteers, mostly from the Bishop Auckland area.

Miner plans more zinc work after hailing tests



HUNDREDS of North-East mining jobs could have moved closer after a firm searching for zinc hailed the project’s potential.

Minco says initial investigations across its Northern Pennine Orefield have yielded significant deposits, which have the potential to deliver millions of tonnes of zinc.

The company has drilled more than 30 test holes across the County Durham and Northumberland border, covering areas between Allenheads, near Stanhope, and Nenthead, in Cumbria, and says numerous sectors harbour deep reserves left behind by lead miners.

A RENEWED effort will be made to bring a supermarket to Bowburn after a new planning permission was granted.

Consent was first granted to build a large store on Bowburn South Industrial Estate in 2008.

Since then, the permission has been varied twice and renewed once, but still no project has gone ahead.

The Westgate Centre, which was used as a Durham County Council outdoors education centre until it closed in 2011, has been granted a change of use to become a residential property.

Plan to replace farm buildings at Low Etherley with houses



PLANS to pull down farm buildings and build houses in their place will be considered by councillors next week.

Stephen Lee has applied to Durham County Council for consent to demolish buildings at Low Etherley Farm, in Low Etherley, near Bishop Auckland, and build three detached houses on the land, with improved access from the B6282.

The plans go before the area planning committee (south and west) when it meets at Spennymoor on Thursday, November 19 at the request of Councillor Heather Smith because concerns including the impact on neighbours, road safety, ecology and drainage have been raised.

Planners say High Grange housing development 'could cause more road accidents'



A HOUSING development has been earmarked for refusal after planners agreed with residents that it would be dangerous and could lead to more car crashes.

An application for 15 “executive” houses had been submitted for land to the south east of High Grange, between Crook and Bishop Auckland.

But the development has been dealt a blow as Durham County Council planning officers have recommended the scheme be rejected by councillors when they meet to discuss it on Thursday, November 19.

Woodham golf club owner fears council planners threaten future of course

DEVELOPERS have accused council planners of threatening the survival of a golf club by giving its proposed multi-million pound redevelopment a negative response.

Hall Construction says that unless Durham County Council backs its plan for Woodham Golf and Country Club near Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, the course could close and jobs will be lost.

The firm wants to build 50 executive houses on part of the land and use profits from their sale to fund improvements including much-needed drainage and a revamp of the clubhouse.

Cotherstone residents fail to block barn conversion plan



VILLAGERS have failed to block plans to convert a barn into a house despite arguing it would ruin the character of an historic building.

Residents from Cotherstone, in Teesdale, turned out in force at a council planning meeting on Thursday to object to the conversion of a field barn 100m east of the village.

One couple felt so passionate about keeping the barn as an agricultural building they offered to buy and restore it and provide a dowry for its ongoing maintenance.

Abandoned homes in Bishop Auckland modernised



FIVE derelict houses in Bishop Auckland have been bought up by a London-based investment company and refurbished as part of a £250,000 property development scheme.

The large four-bedroom brick-built detached homes in Dene Valley View, Gurney Valley were vacant for two years and had fallen into a state of disrepair before being bought at auction last autumn by London and City Group, a real estate investment company based in the capital.

The new owners organised for the Stockton office of Sanderson Weatherall to manage the refurbishment, including all architectural work.

A HOUSING estate has been granted planning permission despite fears over the strain new homes will put on village services.

Opponents highlighted that planning permission has been granted for a total of 350 extra homes in the area in recent months and claimed that the growth in population was putting pressure on public services.
