Chester-le-Street and District AAP Board meetings

We hold regular Board meetings where we put plans and actions in place to help community groups and local organisations develop projects that meet our AAP priorities.

Due to Covid-19, all Board meetings are taking place on Microsoft Teams. If you would like to observe the meeting please email

The Board also looks at how those projects are progressing and gets involved in consultations on local issues.
