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 High Shincliffe, Shincliffe Village and Sherburn House while the Nevilles Cross division to the west of the city centre stretches from South Road to Nevilles Cross and over to Aykley Heads.
There are 2 City of Durham Parish Councillors, Esther Ashby and Carole Reeves, and 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.
The development of land at Mount Oswald will see a significant expansion of the number of properties and the History Centre which is proposed on this site will add to the tourist attractions of the City.
We are very happy to assist any resident who has a concern or local issue – please contact us using the information below.
