Residents in Great Aycliffe & Middridge can find out how local issues are being tackled when the local Area Action Partnership (AAP) holds their next board meeting later this month.
The GAMP Board will be meeting on Tuesday (September 27), between 6pm and 8pm, at Middridge Village Hall, and members of the public are invited to go along to observe proceedings.
Over the last five years Durham County Council has faced large financial challenges as funding from central government has gone down year after year, while costs such as fuel and demand for our services have gone up.
The challenge has not ended and the council need to continue to make savings, including over £29m during 2017/18.
There will be a presentation at the meeting by a senior council officer, explaining the council’s approach and proposals for the future.
The views and local knowledge of those involved in AAPs has been of great value and your feedback has guided us over the last five years.
The Board will also be receiving an update presentation on Child Sexual Exploitation at the meeting.
Local people can also raise any neighbourhood or local policing issues that they would like the Board to address. These need to be put in writing and sent in advance of the meeting.
To help us prepare relevant paperwork in advance, anyone who would like to attend the Board meeting should register by ringing 01325 327441, or by emailing [email protected]
Great Aycliffe & Middridge Partnership is one of 14 Area Action Partnerships set up by Durham County Council in 2009.
