Somerset Levels & Moors LEADER
Due to the EU Referendum, because of the restrictions placed on publicity and promotion, no decisions on projects can be taken until after the purdah period (27th May - 23rd June 2016), therefore no meetings will be held during this period.
We will of course still be working with and supporting applicants to develop their applications.
The Somerset Levels and Moors Local Action Group is pleased to announce the launch of the new LEADER Programme with a £1.4m grant pot available for businesses, farmers, foresters and rural organisations across the Levels and Moors over the next five years.
We are now in a position to issue Outline Applications so if you have a project in mind please get in touch.
For further details of the Programme and the Priorities pleas read the Handbook which can be found by clicking HERE.
LEADER funding is EU money that is allocated via DEFRA for more information take a look at the EU Comission's rural development website.
If you are interested in the proposed new Programme and think you may have a project with good economic benefits for the Levels and Moors then please do get in touch. You can call Anne-Marie Spalding, Programme Manager on 01823 359242 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are unable to acknowledge Outline Applications sent in during the purdah period for the EU Referendum (27 May to 23 June 2016)
You can submit at any time but would not receive a decision until 10 working days after the 24 June 2016. If for any reason purdah is extended following the Referendum then we will provide further advice at that point.
If you have any queries please get in touch.
