We have written our Vision for the Durham City Plan, based on people’s comments from the public consultation:
Durham City’s potential as a beautiful and historic City will be realised through policy and action to improve and protect its qualities and by creating a diverse and resilient economy with attractive and affordable places to live. It will be supported by modern infrastructure and enriched by community engagement in its future.
This leads on to the six themes we are using to develop the Plan’s policies:
- Theme 1 – A beautiful and historic City
- Theme 2 – A City with a diverse and resilient economy
- Theme 3 – A City with attractive and affordable places to live
- Theme 4 – A City with modern infrastructure
- Theme 5 – A City with enriched community life
- Theme 6 – A City with a sustainable future, which will be a cross-cutting aspect to be covered in all the themes, particularly Themes 2, 3 and 4.
The Vision is a draft one, which may change in the light of people’s further comments. What do you think?
