Welcome to Conwy Local Action Group - Conwy Cynhaliol

The Leader Programme for Conwy

Welcome to Conwy Cynhaliol . Funded through the Rural Development Plan for Wales (RDP) as part of the Welsh Government and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. Conwy Cynhaliol is working with Conwy County Borough Council to deliver the LEADER 2014 – 2020 programme in Conwy.

Following the successful completion of the LEADER Programme 2007 – 2013, we have now started the latest programme for which Conwy Local Action Group were successful in securing £1,747,000 for projects.

The LEADER programme is a 7 year investment scheme, which aims to improve resilience and promote transformational change in agriculture, forestry and rural communities. Bringing nearly a billion pounds to rural Wales, it will support a wide range of activities which:

  • Improve competitiveness in the agriculture and forestry sector
  • Safeguard and enhance the rural environment
  • Foster competitive and sustainable rural businesses and thriving rural communities.

Project activity will be delivered under each of the 5 LEADER Themes:

  • Adding Value to local identity and natural and cultural resources
  • Facilitating pre-commercial development, business partnerships and short supply chains
  • Exploring new ways of providing non-statutory local services
  • Renewable energy at community level
  • Exploitation of digital technology

If you have any projects relating to the above themes please contact a member of the team, we’d be very interested in hearing from you.
