Who is behind Shop Chester-le-Street?

The current phase of Shop Chester-le-Street is funded by Chester-le-Street & District Area Action Partnership (AAP) via Chester-le-Street Business Association.

Chester-le-Street & District AAP is the main engagement mechanism of Durham County Council in the Chester-le-Street and District area, and ensures that local residents have a voice in their community. Shop Chester-le-Street is funded from the AAP’s budget to support local projects.

The project is managed by retail consultancy CannyInsights.com.

If local traders, landlords or other organisations wish to pay for additional support – such as if they want some targeted help beyond the scope of the AAP funding – they are able to arrange that directly with CannyInsights.com.
