Local Action Group (LAG) Meetings & Application Deadlines


The final funding round for the 2014-2020 LEADER Programme will take place on 6 February 2019. All new Expressions of Interest must be received by 30 September 2018. 

Applicants who have had their Expression of Interest approved must have their draft application submitted on the electronic LARCS system by 1pm on Thursday 15 November, and their final application submitted by 1pm on Thursday 29 November 2019. All final applications must be accompanied by proof of approved planning permission (where required) and proff of match funding.


IMPORTANT For your application to be considered at the Local Action Group (LAG) meeting the LEADER Development Officer will need to see at least one draft version of your application (including the project plan) at least two weeks before the deadline for submission, in order to provide you with feedback.

You will then need to provide all supporting documentation before the deadline date shown below. Any missing information or documentation may result in a delay to your application being processed.

It should be noted that all applications must be approved by 31 March 2019 (the date of the UK withdrawal from the EU), and therefore there will only be 1 further round of funding. Details of the next round are given below, and the final round will probably take place in early 2019, with application deadlines being in November 2018. 

Planning permission (if required) MUST be in place before an application can be submitted.
