English Heritage bids to save defunct Durham Police radio mast

Have your say

CALLS to save a defunct police radio mast have been backed by English Heritage.

The 150ft-high 1960s structure is expected to go as part of plans to build a new Durham Police headquarters a short distance away, and a housing new estate on its existing Aykley Heads site.

English Heritage has added its objection to plans for the mast to go, saying there is no convincing justification for its demolition, and it could be incorporated into the housing scheme’s layout.
