County Durham Partnership Update - Report of Corporate Director of Neighbourhoods and Climate Change


The Cabinet noted a report of the Corporate Director of Neighbourhoods and Climate Change which provided an update to Cabinet on issues being addressed by the County Durham Partnership (CDP). The report also included updates on other key initiatives being carried out in partnership across the county (for copy of report, see file of minutes).


The Leader of the Council informed Cabinet that the CDP report was full of good news and innovative projects and ideas. The Leader of the Council highlighted examples such as the innovative ‘Econ-versation’, the power of partnership working evidenced as part of the City of Culture bid, the work carried out in terms of Health and Wellbeing around reducing smoking prevalence and the work of the humanitarian partnership in providing a place of safety for those fleeing conflict in the Ukraine, Afghanistan and Syria.


Councillor E Scott added that the strength of the partnership and the hugely important work the partnership was reflected throughout the report and commended the ‘Big Econ-versation’, the inclusive and wide-ranging review of community engagement and the extension of the holiday activities with healthy food programme. Councillor Scott added that such initiatives and those highlighted by the Leader of the Council, demonstrated the inspiring nature of partnership working.




That the report be noted.
