Digital Durham 2019 broadband consultation

Darlington Borough Council is working with partner councils as part of the Digital Durham programme to improve broadband infrastructure.

Digital Durham is working to provide superfast broadband in the council areas of County Durham, Gateshead, Sunderland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Tees Valley (Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Redcar and Cleveland). We work in partnership with Broadband Delivery (BDUK), which is part of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).

Digital Durham contracts with suppliers who receive public funding to provide superfast broadband in areas where it is either not available or included in any future commercial plans. Significant investments have already been made with Darlington Borough Council funding, Tees Valley Combined Authority and central government match funding. Decisions on where public funding can be spent are made following consultation and state aid approval as part of an Open Market Review.

The public consultation stage of the Open Market Review is now open. This primarily gives broadband wholesale providers an opportunity to comment on the classifications that have been allocated to areas from the data they have supplied. It also gives residents, businesses and communities a chance to review, comment or query the current and planned coverage.

Durham County Council is the lead body for the Digital Durham programme. Information on the consultation and how to respond can be found on their website at the following link:

Darlington South Park Foundation - park user survey

Darlington South Park Foundation is a group of independent people who want to work with you and other users of South Park to help shape its future. The individuals on the steering group are representatives of the local business community, Friends group, Round Table and local charity Groundwork. We are working in partnership with Darlington Council, to see how we can work to add value to the park on top of the work that the Council undertakes. 

We would like to invite you to take a few minutes to complete a short survey which intends to find out the different ways people use the park and track suggestions of how improvements could be made. These questions will help form our outcomes and help us prioritise our activities. Please complete surveys no later than 30 September 2018. If you require further information email [email protected] or call 01642 815663

Have your say, The 2018 National Rural Crime Survey

Local residents have a brand new opportunity to have a say about rural crime in the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey, launched by the National Rural Crime Network.

Have your say to help to provide a picture of what has improved, what challenges remain and what more can be done to make a difference to the lives of those who live and work in our rural communities.

The survey is now available at: www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net [external link]

The consultation closes on Sunday 10 June 2018.

Why is there a survey?

It is three years since the last National Rural Crime Survey and it is now time to repeat it. It is important to see what has changed since the 2015 survey. It will help to provide a picture of what has improved, what challenges remain and what more can be done to make a difference to the lives of those who live and work in our rural communities.

How will the results of the survey be used?

The results of the 2018 survey will be used by the Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner to inform and formulate the next County Durham and Darlington Rural Statement which will be published in the autumn. This will help to deliver effective, appropriate and efficient services to our Rural Communities. The results will also feed into the National Police Chiefs’ Council’s Rural Affairs National Strategy for 2018-2021 which is also due to be launched later this year
