Vision and Priorities

The Sustainable Community Strategy (SCS) - 'Altogether Better Durham' sets out our long term vision for the future of County Durham. It describes what partners want the county to be like by 2030 and the types of things we will do to get there.

The vision of our SCS is for an 'Altogether Better Durham'. The SCS has the main aims of :

  • Altogether better place
  • Altogether better for people

We recognise that these are all interlinked and none can be considered in isolation from the others.

Partners have agreed that improving the economy is the top priority for County Durham.
