It will provide a range of potential options for delivering improvements in housing and the environment.

Coun Kevin Shaw, cabinet member for housing and assets at Durham County Council, said: “We have already received a lot of positive feedback in response to the work we have been doing in Horden but now we are keen to hear what residents would like to happen next.

“Their views will be important in shaping the masterplan which could provide a range of options for delivering improvements should external funding be available following many years of lack of investment by central government.”
