Peak LEADER Grant


The Parish Council was awarded a Peak LEADER grant in November. The grant will be used to purchase Winter Lighting, Signage and Information Lecterns. The first phase of the Winter Lighting has been installed and we look forward to putting up the second phase in August 2018 in readiness for the illuminations.

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. However, the installation of the lecterns and finger posts will be delayed until a clearer picture regarding the public conveniences is known.

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