Durham’s Green Belt

The map shows the current extent of the Green Belt in County Durham, using information (technically an ESRI shape file) provided by Durham County Council. The Green Belt is under threat from proposals in the County Durham Plan. The areas that the previous version of the Plan proposed to remove are shown in red. This now includes the late changes at Merryoaks and the “Northern Quarter”.
