Implementation Process

Essentially the Durham charging scheme is active along one road (Saddler Street) and has not created any problems such as boundary issues or traffic displacement on to other routes. It would appear, therefore, that the scheme is broadly non-controversial and therefore there was not a high level of opposition to the scheme being implemented.

As a historic city with a great deal of heritage, it is not hard to see why a road pricing measure was well received in Durham. The general public can acknowledge that the restraining of traffic in the centre is helping to preserve the city’s heritage and therefore a charge to protect this has been well received. Additionally, because the charge only affects one street, there is little financial disbenefit to residents wishing to access the main part of Durham’s city centre.
