Time to comment on plans

Have your say

COMMUNITIES are being asked for their final views as plans are put together for the future of towns and villages.

Following consultation with residents, businesses and organisations, the latest version of the County Durham Plan has been published.

It sets out a vision for the county up to 2030, including proposals to bring forward jobs, housing, shops, and road improvements, with the aim of creating a thriving economy, vibrant towns and more visitor attractions in County Durham, while protecting and enhancing its heritage and character.

Prior to its submission to Government, which will examine the ideas publicly in summer 2014, the final consultation includes a series of events.

The sessions include one at Durham Town Hall on Tuesday from 4pm to 8pm; Eastlea Community Centre in Seaham on Friday, October 18, also from 4pm to 8pm; the Glebe Centre on Saturday, October 19, from 5pm to 9pm; East Durham College in Peterlee from 4pm to 8pm on Sunday, November 20, and Easington Social Welfare Centre from 4pm to 8pm on Monday, November 21.
