SELEP’s rural economy is a vibrant mix of traditional and innovative land-based businesses including farming, horticulture, viticulture, forestry and rural tourism. These sit alongside a broad range of non-rural businesses.
Rural Working Group
The Rural Working Group represents our rural sector and meets on a regular basis to discuss key issues, share priorities and developments and act as a strategic sounding board for the LEP. It has a broad-based membership representing the key sectors in this part of the economy. It also acts as a light touch focal point for applications to the Sector Support Fund. To date two projects have been delivered with financial support from the fund with others already under consideration by the SELEP Board.
