A PLAN to create the UK’s biggest eco village on the site of a disused wool factory have been unveiled.
The former Paton and Baldwins factory, on the outskirts of Darlington, will be transformed into a flagship ecological community.
The vision would result in the 110-acre Lingfield Point business park, as the site is known, being transformed with more low energy offices, eco homes and leisure facilities powered by renewable energy.
There would also be sustainable transport links, such as bus services, all designed to protect the environment.
Central to the vision is the new Darlington Eastern Transport Corridor, now under construction, which will link the A66 to central Darlington.
