The new 2015-2020 programme strategy will be delivered in Ayrshire by the Local Action Group (LAG) who are responsible for creating and successfully delivering the Community-led Local Development Strategy (CLLDS) for the rural mainland Ayrshire. 

What is the Community-led Local Development Strategy (CLLDS)? 

It is a step-by-step process that takes place within a local area, led by local people, communities and business in order to create a vision and an action plan to achieve it.  Using a method called Community Led Local Development (CLLD), developing an LDS helps local people, communities and businesses decide on the social, economic, environmental and cultural priorities and how to take responsibility for making things happen themselves and in turn improving the self reliance and confidence of the whole community.

The Ayrshire LEADER Programme 2015-2020 is open for applications
