Rural development framework

The Leicestershire Rural Partnership is responsible for setting the vision,  principals and priorities for rural development in Leicestershire.

The Rural Development Framework outlines four key priorities:

  1. Active, inclusive and empowered parish councils and meetings
  2. Working with communities to deliver local services
  3. An enterprising and sustainable rural economy
  4. More affordable homes in rural areas

There are also three cross-cutting priorities:

  • Rural transport solutions;
  • A better environment;
  • Superfast Broadband.

The Rural Development Framework is available to download below.
