The Parish Council are working with Durham County Council and Durham Constabulary in an effort to combat speeding motorists but we need the help of residents.
One hurdle we face is that of evidence – although people regularly complain, incidents are not being reported therefore the police have little evidence that speeding is a problem.
Please help us achieve our goals by reporting all incidents using one of the methods below:
- Phone – 101
- Online @ https://www.durham.police.uk/Report-It/101-Live-Chat/101-Live-Chat.asp
- Face to Face – by attending PACT meetings which are held every month
Did you know that 999 and 101 are not the only ways to report a crime?

The Parish Council have been working to produce a Parish Plan which highlights the objectives of the Council for the next 4 years.
The plan considers the issues facing the community and our ability to respond with the resources available. It is a planning tool to assist us with the practical decisions we must take, supported by a review process that helps us, and you, look back on our performance.
This is our first parish plan, prepared at a time of austerity with an emphasis placed on value for money, efficiencies, and collaboration. Hutton Henry Parish Council, as the first tier of local government, is uniquely situated to provide the forum for understanding and supporting the needs of this community. It provides advocacy on behalf of its residents, uses linkages to other organisations to bring in services, or directly procures them itself. Day-to-day, the council will seek solutions for the community, looking for skills and volunteers to make improvements to our surroundings or bringing neighbourhood issues to local attention to promote a better quality of life for all. Above all your parish council is here to help, support and encourage.
