The Public’s Views
We held two Open Meetings in June and July 2015, plus conducted a questionnaire survey of all households in the Forum area. The full results of this public engagement are available: PrioritySurveyResults For brief summaries of the results look at: What is good about Durham City; What is bad; What needs to change. All the issues fedback to us have been included although the Forum cannot address all of these because some are outside our area (e.g. the bypass) or are not a planning issue (e.g. setting up a City Council). However, these comments are now available here for the relevant bodies to see.
Young People’s Views
The Forum carried out a study of young people’s views of Durham City via a series of meetings from October 2015 to March 2016. The results are now available: npf-young-peoples-consultation-report-2016-pdf. See our accompanying press release.
