The Examination in Public hearings end and the Inspector comes out against both Relief Roads! - See page 2.

Our Vision

We believe Durham can be a prosperous and attractive place in which to live, work and visit by developing brownfield sites in the City and expanding the surrounding towns and villages. The proposals for relief roads in the Green Belt should be replaced by a sustainable transport strategy including cycling, walking and integrated public transport.
