The Local Government Commission have recommended unitary status for Durham and Darlington with no changes to the remaining 'largely rural' areas of County Durham.

Chairman of the Commission, Sir John Banham announced: 'The commission consulted with residents and these areas revealed that they generally prepared the present two tier system and did not support unitary authorities based on either the existing county council areas or existing district boundaries.'

The Commission has also proposed unitary status for all five districts in Cleveland - Darlington, Hartlepool, Langbaurgh on Tees, Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees.
