Call for new project ideas for LEADER programme in Carmarthenshire

Posted By Robert Lloyd

The LEADER programme, which aims to support the regeneration of rural Carmarthenshire, has opened a new call for Expressions of Interest.

LEADER is designed to get local people, businesses and communities involved in delivering sustainable, innovative solutions to address some of the economic, social and environmental challenges facing rural Carmarthenshire.

The Local Action Group Grŵp Cefn Gwlad manages the LEADER programme in Carmarthenshire.

The programme can provide financial support of up to 80% towards a project’s costs.

The current call is open for those wishing to do feasibility studies only. Guidance on criteria for feasibility studies is available here.

The LAG can also support projects that cooperate with other geographical areas via inter-territorial or transnational working.

Cllr. Cefin Campbell, Executive Board Member for Rural Affairs said:

“The LEADER programme is a fantastic scheme which enables individuals, businesses and communities to deliver and test an idea which seeks to meet strategic priorities for the County.

“We would urge anyone with such an idea to get in touch and our officers can discuss further”

If you have an innovative idea which addresses the scheme priorities and would like to discuss further, please contact the RDP team on 01267 242431/394; email RDPsirgar@sirgar.gov.uk

The deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest is 29 June 2018

This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
