Join your local AAP
The Board currently have a public representative vacancy and will be advertising shortly. If any member of the public is interested in becoming a public representative, please LinkText=;.
If you would like to have a say and influence decisions that affect your area join your local AAP. As a local forum member you'll be invited to meetings and events to discuss community issues.
The board oversees the progress of the AAP. It has 21 members - seven public, seven partner, and seven county / parish council representatives. Find out more on our board meetings and members page.
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. Find out more on our forum meetings page.
Please contact us for the latest meeting dates and let us know beforehand if you'd like to attend so that we can make sure there's enough paperwork and seating available.
Task and finish groups
Task and finish groups meet on a regular basis to discuss relevant issues and develop projects to address the AAP's priorities. Each task group is made up of forum members, board members, and representatives of those organisations whose co-operation is needed to get the job done.
Our projects and priorities
Members of our AAP have helped to choose the priorities for action to help improve our area. Our current priorities are:
- activities for young people
- road safety and highways
- support for older people
- support for the voluntary and community sector
- employment and job prospects
If you would like an update on the work of these task groups please see Mid Durham AAP board.

The Mid Durham AAP small grants fund for community groups continues to award funding. The scheme aims to support local groups working within the Mid Durham AAP area (see map above) to improve the lives of local people. The minimum grant is £200 and the maximum is £400. Groups can apply for one grant per financial year.

Annual reports, reviews and budget information
We work on many projects across our area which require funding. We have an area budget to manage projects but we also work to bring in funding from other sources. Each county councillor also has a neighbourhood budget.
