Durham 2030 - our vision for the future


What do you want for County Durham by 2030? What are your hopes and ambitions for the place you live, work and/or visit? Take part in our consultation to help shape our vision for this future.

Consultation on a new vision

We reviewed the vision for the County because the previous vision was over nine years old and many of the original aims have been achieved.

The consultation was at an early stage and this was the first stage of a two part consultation exercise. Between November and January we wanted your views on proposed high level aims. We will then consult with you again on the draft vision having taken on board your views on the emerging findings.

The proposed ambitions were our initial thoughts on the key themes we feel reflect the particular needs and opportunities of County Durham. They were based on an initial assessment of public views from a range of previous consultations as well as data on how we were performing as a county and national policy changes.

We hoped that you would take part as this was an important exercise which would influence how public services work with local people and businesses to provide services and develop the County over the next decade.

The consultation was supported by an emerging findings document - Icon for pdf Durham 2030 - a vision for our future (PDF, 852.3kb)  - which provided more detail on what has changed in the County over the last 10 years, and the strengths and challenges that we have identified through our initial assessment.

Have your say

The closing date for comments was Monday 21 January 2019.

What happens next?

Your feedback was used to develop a draft Durham 2030 Vision document, which will be subject to a further consultation between February and March.
