Rooting out fresh approach

Have your say

RESIDENTS and community groups have pooled their efforts to make their town greener.

Durham County Council’s civic pride team worked with residents’ associations and Chester-le-Street and District Area Action Partnership (AAP) on two projects to brighten up streets.

Areas improved include Osborne Road, Newfield and Pelton Lane Ends, with residents now looking after planters and baskets.

The project was funded by the AAP, which is supporting community groups as part of the Royal Horticultural Society’s It’s Your Neighbourhood competition.
