Durham AAP forum meetings
Find information on Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP) forum meetings.
The forum meets twice a year and is open to local people, businesses and organisations. It sets the AAP's priorities which it seeks to address through its projects and monitors the progress of these. Forum members can share their opinions and ideas with the AAP team and take part in task and finish groups to help achieve the priorities.
