Durham County Council are working on the Digital Durham programme which aims to bring super fast broadband to every single business, home and community across the County.

We consider access to digital services to be key to unlocking economic growth in County Durham to create more jobs, improve business, support learning and transform access to services for our communities.

If you are a resident, worker or business with an interest in Weardale we need your help.  Broadband is a priority for the Weardale Action Partnership (AAP) and we are supporting Durham County Council with its plans for super fast broadband.   To  ensure that Weardale is a priority for the programme we must demonstrate that there is sufficient demand in order to persuade telecom providers there is a demand for their products.

This is why we need your help.  We need as many people who live and work in Weardale to complete Durham County Council’s Broadband Survey – just follow this link: Complete the survey
