County Development Plan 1951 Written Analysis prepared for the County Council of Durham

Durham County Council Press 1951

320pp illustrated with b/w photographs, plans, including some fold outs and diagrams. Red cloth as issued. Signature of Jonathan Wager on front end paper. Good copy. The plan initiated the concept of "Category D" villages that basically identified settlements Durham County Council would no longer invest in. A concept that led depressingly to the decline of much of West Durham as the designation stigmatised the old mining areas of the County.
