New LEADER programme for Cambridgeshire Fens – come and have your say

Logos

Those who live and work in the Cambridgeshire Fens LEADER area will have the strongest knowledge of challenges that need to be addressed in the local rural economy.

As such, Cambridgeshire ACRE is keen to involve local people, organisations and businesses in planning the Local Development Strategy for the 2014 – 2020 LEADER programme.

New Picture (17) We want people who might benefit from this funding to join us to explore the opportunity further and to contribute ideas to shape our bid, so that it reflects what the local rural economy really needs. To this end we are holding three workshops in June:

A total of 66, all very different projects were part-financed with LEADER funding in the previous period which ended in December 2013 ; see http://www.cambsacre.org.uk/fensadventurers/projects.php for some case studies.

About markatousewasheslps

I am currently coordinating a partnership-led bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (for a circa £600K Heritage Grant bid) focusing on strengthening the unique yet vulnerable natural heritage in the Cambridgeshire Fens surrounding the Old west River, the new 'New Life on the Old West' project. Until recently I was the Programme Manager for the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme, leading on the 1-year development and 3-year delivery phases of the Heritage Lottery Fund grant-aided Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership (OWLP) scheme (from Dec 2012 until March 2017), on behalf of and in close cooperation with a wide range of local, regional and national partner organisations. The Ouse Washes LP's portfolio of 51 projects have focused on: conservation works to historic and natural environmental assets; improving community participation & engagement with the landscape and its heritage; increasing access and learning opportunities; and providing more opportunities for training in traditional land management skills. The overall aim has been to leave a long-term legacy for this fascinating and unique landscape, in the process creating tangible improvements to social, economic and environmental aspects of this landscape, its heritage and communities.
