Boosting Rural Jobs
Cheshire East Council, in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council and Warrington Borough and Trafford Councils, can now announce the official launch of the Cheshire LEADER Programme, which aims to deliver nearly £3m of funding to rural areas of Cheshire, as well as rural parts of Warrington and the Dunham Massey area.
LEADER is part of the Rural Development Programme for England, which is funded by the European Union, with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) as the managing authority.
LEADER aims to help create jobs and stimulate economic growth by providing funding for businesses and organisations looking to begin or expand their operations in the rural area.
