Durham County Council as the Principal Authority can only formally adopt the new name following local consultation.
If implemented, the new title would not affect any other aspect of the running of the Parish Council and all existing wards and elected members would remain as they are.
The Parish Council has launched a four-week consultation starting on Monday 2 March and closing on Sunday 29 March 2020.
Your views on this proposal will be included in the decision making process.
You can comment on the proposed change in the following ways:

- in writing – Hutton Henry Parish Council, 3 Crossways Court, Thornley, Durham DH6 3GZ
