   Bishop Auckland and Shildon AAP Board Meeting 31 March 2010
   Key Messages
   The following are the key messages from the Board meeting held on Wednesday
   31March 2010 at King James I Community Arts College, Bishop Auckland.
        Each of the three Task & Finish Groups presented an update on progress. The
         Unemployment & Job Prospects Task & Finish Group Lead reported that due to
         unforeseen circumstances the Wolves Lair project had to be reworked, with a
         suggestion that one of the previous identified projects the Town Centre
         Development for Bishop Auckland and Shildon replace it. This was agreed by the
         Board.
        The AAP Co-ordinator gave a report on Playbuilder II reminding the Board that a
         Task & Finish Group had been set up to review the expressions of interest for the
         Programme. Three out of the seven projects had been short listed from the Bishop
         and Shildon area. They were; Shildon, Escomb and Newfield. Unfortunately the
         Shildon project would not progress any further due to the amount of play areas
         already in the vicinity. She further advised the Board that in May the Cabinet would
         consider which projects would be implemented from the whole of the County.
        The Chair detailed the Priorities Report, reminding the Board that Durham County
         Council established the Area Action Partnerships in September 2009. This meant
         the current priorities which the Bishop Auckland and Shildon Partnership were
         working with, were only at the stage where schemes were starting and to re-
         evaluate the priorities now may be too soon. There were a number of options
         available. 1. carry on with the priorities already identified, 2. investigate how we
         may support any of the other priorities identified, 3. wait until the evaluation stage of
         the current priorities. It was resolved by general consensus that the Board continue
         to work with the 3 priorities which had already been identified from the original 10.
        The Chair detailed the report advising of the process for election of the chair of the
         Board. He confirmed he would step down from his position at the meeting due to be
         held on 27th May 2010. It was resolved that the proceedings for the selection of
         Chair and Vice Chairs at the first Board meeting of the new year as outlined in the
         report and the role of the Chair and Vice Chairs as set out in the Terms of
         Reference.
        COUNTYWIDE PARTNER ISSUES: N. Whitton gave a presentation to the Board
         on the consultation about the closure of seven in house care homes.. To ensure
         that all feelings were captured it was agreed that all questions should be sent to him
         in writing and they would receive a written response.

         Auckland. Dates are Thursday 27 May 2010, Thursday 29 July 2010, Thursday 30
