Village Centre Improvements

Although 8 months since the public exhibition in the King’s Social Club last September, Durham County Council are now making progress on spending the S106 funding for environmental improvement schemes in the village centre.

The dilapidated bus shelters have just been replaced with two new ones. S106 money had been used for demolition of the stone shelter and new tarmac base whilst Public Transport has funded the new glass shelters.





Costs and designs will be known later this month for the reconstruction of the original Pant [drinking fountain] and new seating area opposite Rumi’s.  This is the first priority of 6 schemes that were agreed at a meeting of Stakeholders in February.  If there is sufficient funding, the second and third priorities are conservation street lighting and coping stones for the flower bed opposite the Golden flower.
