Welcome to Western Somerset LEADER


If you are a Business, Land Owner, Farmer, Forester or a Rural Community Group that wants to develop a project then please get in touch.  We are currently building a list of projects ready for the period post the Autumn Statement.

The new programme has a strong economic focus, which will work towards supporting economic growth and Job creation in Western Somerset.  It is hoped that the fund will deliver over £1m of grants to the area over the next 5 years.

For more information on the grants please read the Western Somerset LEADER Handbook - click HERE

LEADER funding is EU money that is allocated via DEFRA for more information take a look at the EU Comission's rural development website.

In Somerset we have four LEADER Groups - Levels & Moors, Western Somerset, Making It Local (Blackdown Hills) and The Heart of Wessex.   Each scheme has slightly different funding priorities however the ‘Measures' that they deliver are set by Europe.
