Help to shape future

RESIDENTS can find out about key community priorities during forthcoming forum meetings.

East Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP) will hold an event on Thursday, November 10, from 6pm at Shotton Hall Banqueting Suites.

It will allow people living and working in east Durham to find out about local issues and have a say on projects that affect them.

Those attending will be asked to rank 10 priorities in order of preference to develop a list of the most important local issues.

The list will then be passed to Durham County Council’s AAP boards which will decide on the priorities for 2012-13.

A similar meeting for people living in the Sedgefield area will be held at 5pm at Coxhoe Village Hall, in Front Street, Coxhoe, on Tuesday, November 15.

Anyone wishing to attend is asked to contact their local AAP in advance.
