Defra has just announced that we have been awarded £1.97 million for Greater Dartmoor LEAF and £1.52 million for South Devon Coastal LAG to deliver the local development strategies that we submitted last autumn. This money will go to businesses, farms and communities across West Devon, the South Hams and Teignbridge to help improve the rural economy. We are looking for projects that would like a share of the funding and that can help to create jobs and make businesses stronger and more profitable.
