Fortunately thats one of the few things that won't happen

Did you hear what the bloke said on that clip - Crookfoot holds a million cubic metres of water and Hurworth Burn is three times bigger.
Take the water out and you're left with a bloody big hole - and you can't build houses in a hole - so that means importing one hell of a lot of fill before you can even start - and that probably won't happen until any prospective developers have improved the local roads to a standard that can take the pressure of hundreds of tipper trucks and heavy plant.

Plus houses aren't really selling that well at the moment anyway - there's development sites all over the north-east sitting idle 'cos house-builders and developers daren't build anything that might not sell.

I don't really know what any prospective buyer could use them for - Hurworth Burn might be big enough for some limited water sports but I doubt Crookfoot is and the ressy certainly isn't. If the new owner improved the access, shortened some of the longer walks and made them into day-ticket waters he would probably get a steady income from angling but I doubt it would make him rich.

It certainly wouldn't offer any kind of return on the initial investment needed. Probably the most likely buyers would be one of the environmental organisations. If that happens, you can kiss goodbye to the fishing. Hopefully, any prospective buyer(s) will have shared use in mind.
Also, what will become of HDAC?

Anyway, whilst I think Crookfoot and Hurworth would be safe from development, I could see Hart reservoir becoming a focal point for a new housing estate as it straddles hundreds of acres of new developments!
