Spennymoor AAP - Priority Survey


Spennymoor AAP - Priority Survey


There are 14 AAPs that cover the whole of County Durham which were set up to give people in County Durham a greater choice and voice in local affairs.  


Across all 14 AAPs, local people are being asked to vote on what priorities they would like to see their AAP work towards.  In order to give as many residents as possible the opportunity to vote on their local priorities, we conducted a countywide survey/campaign.  The last survey was carried out in 2016 and we had just under 8,000 responses from across the county (including the views of over 3,000 secondary school pupils).  As a result of these responses, each AAP was able to work with partners and local organisations to develop a range of projects and schemes to meet the priorities and issues raised by residents. 


During 2017/18, the AAPs allocated over £2.5 million and helped bring into the county over £2.3 million of matched investment to deliver 825 local projects across the county.


In order to ensure local AAPs continue to work towards current and relevant local issues, we would now like to once again hear from you on your issues and priorities.  It is essential that we receive YOUR views on YOUR community, therefore we would like to encourage you, your friends and your family members to complete one of our surveys.

DCC Consultations

Durham County Council (DCC) want everyone who lives in, works or visits County Durham to help improve their services and influence the decisions they make. One way we do this is by consulting with people on what they think about the services and projects DCC provide.

DCC will consult and involve as many people as possible when reviewing and implementing services. The result will be services that better match the needs of communities.
