A PLANNING application has been submitted to place up to ten beehives on Darlington parkland.

The Darlington Beekeepers' Association is working with the Friends of the Denes and Darlington Borough Council to site the hives on the redundant green at Bowling Dene park, off Bartlett Street.

Permission is needed from the council to grant the green a change of use and a decision is expected by March.
