About the Masterplan
The Estate Masterplan identifies the potential capacity of the estate and presents possible development opportunities. It is a guide to how we could develop the estate over the long-term. It will protect Durham’s important heritage for generations to come; safeguard Durham’s position as a collegiate University at the heart of the national, regional and local economy; and create facilities to enhance the University’s reputation and support our vision to be world-leading in research, education and the wider student experience.
The Masterplan seeks to build on and strengthen the relationship between City and University, by easing accommodation constraints, enhancing access and developing facilities for common use. We are committed to being closely engaged with local and regional stakeholders in the public, private and voluntary sectors, as well as local residents, thus fulfilling an important role within Durham, Stockton and the wider North East.
