About us#LabourWorks for County Durham
In 2009 a unitary authority was established to replace eight previous councils. From the outset, the priority of the new council has been economic growth, jobs and regeneration – while developing stronger, safer and healthier communities across County Durham.
Despite the severity of government cuts and a probable further £70million of cuts to come over the next three years as austerity continues, there have been many achievements since Durham became a unitary authority.

It's time for a fair funding deal for County Durham.
Since 2010, Government cuts have been far greater in the north than the south, year after year. The scale of these cuts threatens services across County Durham. I call on the government to change its policies and provide a fair funding deal for County Durham.
