Barnard Castle Town Council will be staging a two-day consultation event around an exhibition of ideas for improving the management of cars driving onto the Demesnes from Thorngate via Gray Lane.
The Town Council will host an open day to explain this option on Saturday 23 September in the Dawson Room, Woodleigh, from 11:00am – 3:00pm. There will be a display of the option which has emerged from this project and an opportunity to discuss this with members of the town council and to leave comments and feedback.
The weekend open day will be followed by a second drop-in session on the evening of Monday 25 September, when the Dawson Room will be open from 6:00pm – 8:00pm, which will be attended by representatives of the town council and the police.
The Demesnes is one of a number of areas in the town in which the town council is working to take over day-to-day management from the county council. This scheme has been awarded central government funding, some of which may be applied to funding a suitable and affordable solution for the Demesnes.
