Have your say on the future

Have your say

DURHAM residents are being reminded they still have a month to have their say on plans that will shape the future of the county.

During the last four weeks, Durham County Council has hosted more than 60 consultation events and spoken to thousands of residents and businesses about the County Durham Plan.

Coun Neil Foster, Cabinet member for economic regeneration, said: “The plan is perhaps at the most significant stage in its development and this is your chance to have your say.

“The current draft provides an outline of how the county could look in the future but we really need the public to help us make the decisions to come.

“The latest version of the Plan shows major proposals that will help to shape the future landscape and economy of County Durham over the next 20 years.

“It sets out where new housing and employment opportunities will be developed and is the most important regeneration document the council produces.”

A series of public events are set to take place across Durham this month, including at Murton, Sherburn, Easington and Chester-le-Street.

The consultation period runs until November 2.
