Plans have been approved to sell off 50 acres of land to address a predicted shortage of future housing in Darlington borough. The majority of land agreed for release is in urban areas. The largest is a 25-acre plot at Muscar House Farm, off Barmpton Lane on the outskirts of Darlington, which could accommodate up to 90 houses.

Darlington Council has previously identified the need for around 6,000 homes, plus amenities and business premises, to be built across the borough up to 2026.
