The workshop on Thursday 4 August developing a vision for the new Darlington Local Plan 2016-2036 generated some very useful discussion and feedback. We will be using this to inform the Local Plan's vision and objectives, which will in turn guide development in the Borough over the next twenty years. The draft vision will be included in a report to the Council’s Place Scrutiny Committee and Cabinet in the Autumn.
Copies of the presentations from yesterday's event (4 August 2016) can be downloaded here (all load as PDF's in separate window):
