DCC Consultations

Durham County Council (DCC) want everyone who lives in, works or visits County Durham to help improve their services and influence the decisions they make. One way we do this is by consulting with people on what they think about the services and projects DCC provide.

DCC will consult and involve as many people as possible when reviewing and implementing services. The result will be services that better match the needs of communities.
