Welcome to the page for the Durham City West Branch Labour Party. We cover the council divisions for Durham South and Nevilles Cross and part of the Elvet and Gilesgate Division.
We are a large active Branch with many members from the City, University and broader community. Durham South includes Shincliffe, Bowburn, Hett and Croxdale while the Nevilles Cross division to the west of the city centre includes Framwellgate and Crossgate up to County Hall.
These are 2 council divisions in the City of Durham Constituency without Labour Councillors but our M.P. and local members are very active within the communities. Working with the County Council we are keen to ensure local people benefit from the large amount of development which is happening. New housing has and can be very beneficial but we want to ensure sufficient green spaces and community facilities are maintained.
Nevilles Cross is in need of a community centre and we support this campaign and we share the concerns of increased traffic. Our M.P. has worked very hard to secure the funding which enabled the development of Durham Johnston School.
We are very happy to assist any resident who has a concern or local issue – please contact us using the information below.
