The City of Durham Parish Council have submitted a proposal to amend the Durham City Neighbourhood Area boundary, in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2017 and the Localism Act 2011.
The amendment is being sought to ensure the neighbourhood plan area aligns with the new parish boundary. An area to the north west near Aykley Heads is being removed from the currently designated neighbourhood area, while additional land in Gilesgate to the east of the proposed neighbourhood area is being included.
The consultation is scheduled to run from Thursday 13th December until Thursday 31st January 2019. Any comments in relation to this matter should be made to the County Council by 5.00pm on 31st January 2019.
If you wish to make a comment on this, the consultation is currently hosted on the county council’s website at: http://www.durham.gov.uk/article/18184/Neighbourhood-planning-what-s-happening-
