County Durham Business Plan Breakfast

03 May 2016

Business Durham and Durham County Council would like to invite you to a business breakfast to help shape the County and its economy by contributing to the County Durham Plan.  

This event will allow businesses to have a direct input into the future direction of the County in terms of Economic development, employment land and its overall prosperity, we believe your opinions and views are key to shaping a successful County Durham.

Following its submission, the previous iteration of the Plan was criticised by an inspector for being over ambitious. The council then successfully challenged this, by way of a Judicial Review, resulting in the quashing of the report and an agreement which saw the withdrawal of the plan so that a new examination could take place before a new inspector.  The role of business in supporting economic growth in the county was an important part of the process of getting the inspectors report overturned.

We are now starting the preparation of the new Plan and want to ensure that we maintain your involvement as we go forward. The overarching priority of the Council is still to improve the economic performance of County Durham. We would therefore like you to attend our Business Breakfast in order for you to shape the direction of the new Plan.
