The main presentation and other supporting paperwork from the recent LDS workshop events in Leeds, Peterborough, Bristol and Addlestone.
The workshops were designed to help prospective LEADER groups develop their local development strategy ahead of the deadline for submitting them to Defra.
The day was split into different sections and most of the day was designed around three workshops on the themes of achieving growth, rural tourism and working with the land based sector. The supporting papers were designed to provide a focus to discussions in the workshops - they cover policy issues which are evolving and therefore do not necessarily constitute final Defra policy
There were also chances to ask questions throughout the day which will feed into a question and answer document.
