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.
Please note within the attached map that the amendment is being made to ensure the neighbourhood plan area aligns with the parish boundary.

Any comments in relation to this matter should be made to the County Council by 5.00pm on 31 January 2019.
A-Z Neighbourhood plan - progress to date
The list below sets out neighbourhood plans which are complete or underway throughout the county. There are seven stages that a neighbourhood plan has to go through which are shown on Neighbourhood planning step by step process. If an area is not listed, it is likely that no neighbourhood planning activity has started for that area. If your area is absent from the list we recommend you contact your local parish or town council (websites for each town and parish council can be found on Parish and town websites, or if you are interested in setting up a neighbourhood forum in an unparished area then contact us for more information.
