Cash on offer to villages
12:29pm Friday 4th October 2013 in News
RESIDENTS of 16 villages are to be asked what projects they would like to receive funding.
The Mid Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP) has £80,000 to spend and is looking to give £5,000 to each of the communities it serves.
Earlier this year members of the partnership, the parish council and county councillors held surgeries in the villages across Mid Durham and using the views of 800 residents they created 16 Village Action Plans. From these Action Plans project proposals have been identified which would benefit from a £5,000 boost.
Events will be held in each village at which residents can vote on which local scheme should be funded.
The £5,000 per village has been funded by contributions from the Mid Durham AAP, the Northern Clinical Commissioning Group and county councillors’ neighbourhood budgets.
Attendees will also be asked to help Durham County Council shape its budget in the coming years.
