Levelling Up

Please find below the latest updates received by the Parish Council from Durham County Council

  • DCC are in the process of negotiating land access for a number of surveys in order to better inform a route alignment for the development. Durham County Council and their appointed land agents are working in partnership to make progress.

  • DCC will be arranging for a Public Consultation Event for residents in the near future which will take place at Toft Hill and Etherley Community Centre. This will give our community the opportunity to inspect proposed plans for the route and make any comments/representations/views on the proposals.

  • In due course a pre planning consultation will be arranged with the public having the opportunity to make comment

  • Planning submission will only occur after the consultation has taken place.
