East Durham Rural Corridor 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 currently being held online.  For further information on how to attend the online Board meeting please contact us.

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