When County Durham became a single unitary authority, Durham County Council worked closely with local communities to try and split the County up into smaller recognisable areas to enable the authority to keep in touch with the diverse needs of the County's communities. This saw the creation of 14 different areas which would be overseen by 14 Area Action Partnerships (see map below).

A number of similar websites have been set up in some of the other Area Action Partnership areas, for more details click on the area your interested in on the map.
