We want to give everyone who lives in County Durham, works here or comes to visit, the chance to help improve our services and influence the decisions we make. One way that we do this is through holding consultations.
Before making significant changes to any of our services we ask the public for their views. This helps us ensure our services meet the needs of our communities. For details on how we consult with people, please see our.
