As one of the biggest councils in the country, with a proud tradition of delivering services and stable leadership, Durham County Council is facing the future with confidence.

In its first 10 years as a unitary authority we have achieved a great deal. We have achieved our success through strong leadership, ambition, creative thinking, partnership working and sheer passion for what we do. This is an exciting time to be joining the Council.
