Rural Development Programme for England gets green light

The European Commission has approved the Rural Development Programme (RDP) for England for the funding period 2014-2020.

The Rural Development Programme for England is worth over 4 million euros, and is aimed at improving the competitiveness of the EU farming sector, for protecting the countryside and climate, and for strengthening rural communities.

Social inclusion and local development in rural areas is one of the six Rural Development Priorities for England.  It will help support investment strategies developed at local level, and 70 Local Action Groups will be delivering the LEADER Local Development Strategies Goups.
