Peak LEADER Grant

 

The Parish Council was awarded a Peak LEADER grant in November 2017. The grant is being used to purchase Winter Lighting, Signage and Information Lecterns. The first phase of the Winter Lighting has been installed and the second phase will be completed by Easter 2019.

Derbyshire County Council, as Accountable Body, is responsible for overseeing the work of the Peak Local Action Group (LAG) and operates under delegated authority from the Secretary of State for the Environment Food and Rural Affairs acting through the Rural Payments Agency. LEADER funding is jointly provided through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and by the Department of Food, Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). DEFRA acts as the Managing Authority for LEADER and is ultimately responsible for the management of the scheme.

The Parish Council is extremely grateful to receive this grant which will enable the village to have Winter Lighting. The Signage and Information Lecterns will allow visitors to be able to navigate more effectively throughout the village and aid tourism. The Parish Council has applied for planning permission from DDDC and permission to site them on the highway from Derbyshire County Council. We await the outcome of the consultations which should be completed by May 2019. Depending on decisions, it is hoped that the lecterns and fingerposts will be ordered and installed during the summer 2019.

The Parish Council will continue to update residents and businesses through the quarterly Newsletter on developments.
