Mary has been contacted by a number of businesses in Durham who are concerned about the impact of the New Elvet Bridge closure, especially coming so soon after the lockdown period.

While these works need to be carried out to ensure the safety of the bridge for traffic, and the nature of the repairs mean that doing piecemeal work to allow some use of the bridge during this time is not an option, the decision to carry out these repairs will only add to the frustration and worry that many will be feeling as they plan for the future.

Mary therefore wrote to both Durham County Council, and the Durham Business Improvement District (BID), to see what steps can be taken to support these businesses through this period of closure. She has now received a response from the local authority, and you can read the letter below:
