Durham 2030 - our vision for the future

What do you want for County Durham by 2030? What are your hopes and ambitions for the place you live, work and/or visit? Take part in our consultation to help shape our vision for this future.

Consultation on a new vision

We are reviewing the vision for the County because the current vision is over nine years old and many of the original aims have been achieved.

The consultation is at an early stage and this is the first stage of a two part consultation exercise. Between November and January we want your views on proposed high level aims. We will then consult you again on the draft vision having taken on board your views on the emerging findings.

The proposed ambitions are our initial thoughts on the key themes we feel reflect the particular needs and opportunities of County Durham. They are based on an initial assessment of public views from a range of previous consultations as well as data on how we are performing as a county and national policy changes.

We do hope that you will take part as this is an important exercise which will influence how public services work with local people and businesses to provide services and develop the County over the next decade.

The consultation is supported by an emerging findings document - Icon for pdf Durham 2030 - a vision for our future (PDF, 852.3kb)  - which provides more detail on what has changed in the County over the last 10 years, and the strengths and challenges that we have identified through our initial assessment.
