This afternoon the Planning Committee voted by 8 (Labour) votes to 6 (opposition) to approve in principle the new Council HQ on The Sands.
Both Councillors Richard Ormerod & David Freeman spoke against, as did Lib Dem committee member Cllr Mark Wilkes.
Cllr Richard Ormerod said:
“It’s a sad day for Durham. The extra traffic and pollution will cause havoc for residents of The Sands.
“But there is still hope. The Secretary of State will now look at the plan and may decide to refuse it.”1 Comment
