Current consultations

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 download our consultation and engagement strategy.

Current consultations

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

We must publish a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) which details current and planned pharmacy provision in County Durham by April 2015. You can comment on the draft assessment (LINK) before it is finalised. Comments must be received by Friday 12 December.

For more information, see Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment .

Smoke-free play areas and play parks

We're asking for your views on plans for a voluntary code banning smoking at outdoor play areas and play parks. Have your say on Smoke-free play areas and play parks by 17 October 2014.

Ongoing consultations


We work on a variety of planning schemes across the county and some of these applications require a consultation process. You can find:

Housing stock transfer proposal

In March 2014 the council received Government approval to transfer its homes to its existing management organisations - Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes and East Durham Homes.

The approval gives the council consent to consult with tenants on its proposals.

Your home, your future, your choice - information about the future of your home gives more information about the project and what's planned for the consultation.

Previous consultations

When our consultations close, we analyse the information we receive and make decisions based on that information. Find out about previous consultations:
