Your town, your say, give us your views on the plans for the town
23 July 2019

Tell us what you think of our plan for the town centre – that’s the message from DBC as a period of consultation opens for the new town centre strategy.

The town centre strategy, which was agreed at Cabinet earlier this month, sets out the intended development plans for the town centre over the next ten years. The strategy will focus on improving the attractiveness of the town centre, celebrating Darlington’s heritage, supporting economic growth, improving health and wellbeing and making Darlington a great place to live, work and visit.

Four key areas of the town have been identified for the majority of the development work; the Victorian indoor market, Skinnergate and the Yards, Northgate and Crown Street.

Cllr Alan Marshall Cabinet member for economy and regeneration said: “This document lays out exactly how we intend to develop our town centre over the next decade, with a focus on four key areas of the town.

“I would urge people to get involved in shaping the future of our town by feeding in their views.  This is undoubtedly an exciting time for Darlington as we work towards tackling those areas of the town centre we know could be improved meaning a better town centre experience for everyone.”
