Following a steep rise in cases across the region, the whole of the North East has been named as an area that will receive additional support. You can read the latest statement from LA7 leaders. There are no additional restrictions on the area or residents but with cases of Covid higher than ever before everyone is asked to continue to act carefully and responsibly. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. See Covid-19 advice and information for advice on how to stay safe. Thank you for playing your part in helping to keep the North East open and protect others.

Statement of Community Involvement

The County Durham Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how we will involve you in the planning process.


We have reviewed and updated our Statement of Community Involvement in light on Covid-19 to ensure that plan-making and public consultation can continue in an effective way.

Our SCI describes how we will involve communities, businesses and organisations in the preparation of the County Durham Plan (Local Plan) and on planning application decisions. It also sets out our advice on how town and parish councils and Neighbourhood Forums should seek to involve and consult on the preparation of Neighbourhood Plans.
