Weardale 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.

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

Follow Weardale Action Partnership on Facebook for the latest meeting information.

Board meetings

Anyone can attend a board meeting, but it does help us to organise things if you are able to let us know beforehand. For further information and to check meeting arrangements please contact us.
