Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Acceptability

It has been reported by businesses that the majority of businesses (83%) have not altered their servicing arrangements following the introduction of the charge.



The map above shows the charging scheme. The route shaded in red is Saddler Street which is the scheme’s only charged road.

There was a significant improvement in the public perception of the scheme since its introduction – 70% (a 21% increase from before the scheme was introduced) now believe that the charge is a good idea. In broader terms, there has been a rise to 78% in those who consider Durham City Centre to be a safe place to visit.
