County Durham Plan Issues and Options Consultation Summer 2016

The Council is now consulting on the County Durham Plan Issues and Options between 24 June 2016 and 8 August 2016.
The County Durham Plan will set out how much development, including jobs, housing, shopping and infrastructure is required in the county up to 2033 in order to support a prosperous economy and improve our quality of life. The Plan will direct development to where people want to live and businesses want to invest and seek to secure the infrastructure needed to support this new development including schools, transport and green space. It will also seek to protect and enhance the natural, historic and built environment, promote good design and help us address the causes and impacts of climate change.

The Issues and Options document is available to view at the Council's customer access points, at libraries and on our website at: DCC: County Durham Plan.
If you wish to comment on the County Durham Plan Issues and Options please do so in writing by 6.00pm, 8 August 2016
