The North Wessex Downs LEADER programme has been providing grants to farmers, foresters and community enterprises since 2009. The scheme has delivered nearly £1.5 million under the Rural development programme to improve the rural economy and quality of life for people living and working in the North Wessex Downs.
Now its time to consider the priorities for funding for the next 7-8 years. A series of public consultation meetings are being held during April and May.
Please come along to one of these meetings and tell us what you think, more feedback makes the bid to Defra stronger and improves the chances of securing funding to support rural businesses and communities in the North Wessex Downs.
