Teesdale 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. 

Follow Teesdale Area Action Partnership on Facebook for the latest meeting information.

Anyone can attend a board meeting but it does help us to organise things if you are able to let us know beforehand.  Whilst we are still holding online meetings you will need to register as you will need a link to access the meeting. For further information and to check meeting arrangements please contact us.
