The Teesdale Action Partnership (TAP) Board Meeting

Residents in Teesdale can find out how local issues are being tackled when the local Area Action Partnership holds their board meeting next month.

The Teesdale Action Partnership (TAP) Board will be meeting on Wednesday 10 July 2019, between 6pm and 8pm at UTASS, Middleton in Teesdale, and members of the public are invited to come along to observe proceedings. Local people can also raise any neighbourhood issues that they would like the Board to address. These need to be put in writing and sent in advance of the meeting.

There will be an opportunity for you to have your say on Durham County Council’s proposed new Vision. The purpose of this proposed vision is to provide a shared understanding of what everyone wants

County Durham to look like in 15 years’ time.

We will also receive an update on the Durham History Centre Consultation.

Durham History Centre Consultation. You may recall that in early 2018 we were in touch with you regarding a proposal for a Durham History Centre. Following approval by Councillors in January 2019 to proceed, we are now at a second stage consultation seeking feedback on the high-level design and service proposals. Durham History Centre will bring into one central location the story of the history and heritage of the county, as told through historic records, photographs and objects. The proposals will bring Mount Oswald Manor House back into use, adding a high quality, visually appealing extension which will complement the existing building.   Visit for more information on this exciting project, details of drop in sessions and how you can share your views with us. The consultation runs until Sunday 28 July 2019.

Anyone who would like to attend the Board meeting should register in advance by ringing 03000 264992, or by emailing
