    Neighbourhood Plan.
    The ‘plan’ appears to suggest we live at present in a ‘beautiful and historic city’. This is not the case. Durham City, which is more than just the peninsular, has already been damaged irrevocably by irresponsible policies from the County Council, University, past City Councils and Parliament, and is sadly now an imbalanced community which is set to get even worse. This plan fails to recognise these issues.
