Creating a vibrant future for an attractive rural area
The Lindsey Action Zone (LAZ) funding programme closed in 2013 following the successful allocation of almost £2 million to businesses and community groups supporting rural development in the Lincolnshire Wolds and LAZ area. LAZ was part of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' (defra) delivery of the socio-economic elements of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) using the LEADER approach.
LAZ is now in a "transition" year and is evaluating the lessons to be learned from the last programme before consulting with stakeholders in order to develop a revised strategy and an application for funds from the new European programme 2015-2020. The eligible areas for funding in the boxes below may change as further guidance is issued by defra. This website will be update if future LAZ funds become available. If successful, funds will not be available before January 2015.
News relating to alternative funding opportunities for Lincolnshire based rural areas will be posted in the news section of this website.
