Somerset Levels & Moors Local Action

Consultation Response

We were very pleased with the responses we received to the consultation on the proposed outcomes and priorities for the next Leader funding Programme for the Levels and Moors.

The next steps will be for us to review these comments, and where appropriate use these to shape the final Strategy that will be submitted to Defra for consideration.  We should hear if we have been successful with our bid by December 2014.

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 with the Scheme.  You can ring Dominie Dunbrook, Scheme Manager on 01823 359202 or email her at

Transition Year

The Somerset Levels and Moors Local Action Group may have closed to new applications, but we certainly haven't stopped working!  We have received a grant from Defra so that the Scheme staff can now focus attention on a new grants programme to start in 2015.  So through 2014 we will be reviewing strategies for the area, consulting with key partners and communities on the Levels and Moors and making a strong case for further European funding to support economic activity from 2015 - 2020.

We will keep you up to date with our progress via news items on the website, so keep checking back for further details.
