NULAG Local Priorities

In early September 2014 NULAG successfully submitted their new strategy to DEFRA and were pleased to hear that their bid was successful in November 2014. 

The Local Development Strategy (LDS) covers a large part of Western rural Northumberland incorporating the Northumberland Uplands and sets priorities for the rural development support we hope to provide from 2015-2020.

The LDS draws together the needs and aspirations of local communities with the Government’s priorities for LEADER. Through the consultation events the following six key themes were identified which reflect national priorities:

1.      Increasing farm productivity

2.      Micro and small enterprises and diversification

3.      Rural Tourism

4.      Provision of rural services

5.      Cultural and heritage activity

6.      Increasing forestry productivity





NULAG uses a bottom-up community led approach to deliver funds from the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE). RDPE is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union. NULAG is supported by Northumberland County Council as Accountable Body and by Northumberland National Park Authority
