Assaults on the Durham green belt - See page 2.
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 were defeated, but not the two huge housing developments at Sherburn Road and at Sniperley. We have campaigned for this vision for many years, and continue to oppose unjustified development in the green belt. See page 2 for current threats.
