Get involved - have your say on the County Durham Plan

Your views are taken into account when we prepare all new planning documents. Here's how you can get involved in all our County Durham Plan (CDP) consultations.

Current consultations

Following the announcement of a Government White Paper which is expected to make fundamental changes to how councils are expected to calculate the number and type of houses needed as well as how they are then delivered we have taken the decision to pause the County Durham Plan. See the latest news in our County Durham Plan section for more information.
