|East Durham Area Action Partnership|
The AAP is part of the County Durham Partnership (CDP), which is made up of public, private and voluntary sector organisations, that work together to improve the quality of life for the people in County Durham.
The CDP is made up of five ‘thematic partnerships’:
The County Durham Economic Partnership
Each partnership provides expertise and advice to the CDP through a representative to the CDP Board.
The wider CDP Forum brings together the CDP Board,representatives of the 14 AAPs and a representative from town and parish councils. The Forum works to ensure that strategic decisions about the county are linked to issues of importance to local people. This helps get the most out of the funding and the projects that are happening throughout County Durham.
In spring 2010, they looked again at the priorities and decided that they were still relevant and only needed a ‘light touch’ to change them slightly. The November 2010 Forum meeting gives us the chance to reconsider the priorities for the area.
