Regrettably on Friday 26th January 2018, the RPA announced that, contrary to previous statements, no more funding is going to be made available to LEADER groups.


For the last 5 months or so, we have been encouraged by Defra and the RPA to allocate funding above our original application, with the promise that funds from other underspent programmes would be transferred to the LEADER Programme. We have now been informed that, for reasons yet to be explained, this will now not be the case. As the Wealden and Rother Rural Partnership is over-allocated by almost 400,000, we are unable to accept further Expressions of Interest at present. Applicants who have already been invited to submit a Full Application are not affected by this situation.


Alternative sources of funding may be available, possibly through the Growth Programme and the Countryside Productivity Programme:






I am sorry the Wealden and Rother Rural Partnership has been placed in this position by Defra and the RPA.
