Peak LEADER Grant


The Parish Council was awarded a Peak LEADER grant in November 2017. The grant has been used to purchase Winter Lighting, Signage and Information Lecterns. The installation of both the first and second phases of the Winter Lighting has now been completed.

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 been granted advertisement consent from DDDC to site them on their land. Permission has been granted from Derbyshire County Council to site them on the highway. We had to also re-apply to LEADER as our preferred supplier is no longer in business. Permission has been granted by LEADER for a new supplier and we will shortly be ordering the signage and information lecterns as well as arrange installation. It is hoping that this will be done prior to Easter 2020.

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