- Durham’s Green Belt
- The map shows the current extent of the Green Belt in County Durham, using information provided by Durham County Council. The Green Belt is under threat from proposals in the County Durham Plan.
- Traffic Counters
- Durham County Council have provided a set of spreadsheets giving traffic counts at eleven locations across Durham City. This map shows the locations of those counters.
- Travel times by car to key sites in the City
- It is anticipated that the revised and refreshed County Durham Plan will continue to propose that land be removed from the Green Belt. Guidance is that before removing land from the Green Belt, all reasonable alternatives should be explored. We have interrogated Google Maps to draw up lists of travel time, by car, to three key sites in Durham. These show large areas beyond the Green Belt where travel times are in the range of 5 to 15 minutes, which we contend should have been evaluated. These maps show travel times to Aykley Heads, the centre of Durham and the University HQ.
- Percentage of students
- Shows how many students there are in different parts of County Durham, as at the 2011 census.
- Census Output Areas
