Dissington Garden Village

Our Vision for Dissington

We're not just building houses - we want to build a community.

Dissington Garden Village is set to become one of the first new Garden Villages in the north of England, bringing together homes, businesses, educational facilities, landscaping and countryside to create a beautiful place for the people of Dissington to be proud of.

Using the expertise of the Prince's Foundation, we want to build a strong, resilient and economically vibrant community.

The Dissington Garden Village project will deliver:

  • • Up to 2,000 high quality new homes for a variety of ages and incomes
  • • Substantial employment opportunities fostering entrepreneurialism
  • • New community, recreational and leisure facilities, including educational provision and a medical centre
  • • A flood alleviation scheme to address historic problems in the Town Centre
  • • Funding to facilitate the delivery of the Ponteland Relief Road and other associated infrastructure

Dissington Estate is unique in that it is within the single ownership of Lugano and located in a highly desirable location. These factors enable values to be captured and reinvested into the scheme to enhance affordability and the quality of housing; provide infrastructure improvements upfront; and give more back to the local community than typical development projects.

The Enquiry by Design process, led by The Prince's Foundation, has directly informed our Illustrative Masterplan and associated design principles. We have aimed to create not simply a unique place but a sustainable community where people want to live, work and relax.

We will be submitting an outline planning application in due course that will set the foundations for future detailed applications.
