At Ferryhill Town Council we encourage local people to get involved and have the opportunity to influence decisions affecting Ferryhill.
From time to time we will invite local residents to take part in consultations and ask opinions on major changes proposed by the Town Council that affect Ferryhill.
We also encourage local people to respond to consultations being undertaken by Durham County Council and other local organisations that have an affect on the town. A link to their consultations is included on this page.

DURHAM COUNTY COUNCIL CONSULTATIONS
Consultation on the development of a new Children, Young People and Families’ Strategy 2022-2025
Development of a new strategy to support children, young people and families for the next three years is underway. County Durham’s Children, Young People and Families Partnership is leading on this work.
The Partnership has already done some initial work with children, young people and family groups, the voluntary and community sector and children’s services professionals, as well as looking at local data telling them what it’s like to live in County Durham. You can find information and a survey on the council’s website at: https://www.durham.gov.uk/article/27541
Working with this information, the partnership has come up with a draft vision which outlines what we hope to achieve and seven themes to focus our work on. A short animation to support communication with the wider public and some easy read materials to be used with children and other groups who might need them has been produced.

To help the Partnership check they are on the right track could you please take part in their consultation which is open until Wednesday 10 August.
The Partnership will use your feedback to finalise a draft strategy which will be available for further feedback in September.
If you have any queries, or would like to be further involved in the strategy’s development, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support – the Partnership looks forward to hearing from you.
There are no other consultations at this present time.
