I went along to Durham County Council’s Council meeting on Wednesday of this week, 24th February, and was interested in a question submitted by a member of the public. This was that it had been 2 years since the regeneration of North Road, Durham had been agreed and the bus station was a disgrace. Had this been put to bed? Cllr. Neil Foster, Cabinet Member for Regeneration replied that this Gateway was to be improved and new shops planned also. I hope that Cllr. Foster, also County Councillor for Tudhoe Ward, Spennymoor can persude his Council colleagues to agree to spend money improving shopping areas and parking in his home town of Spennymoor as well.
