Local Development Strategy
Arwain Sir Benfro has a Local Development Strategy (LDS) – a five year plan of activity that they would like to see supported in Pembrokeshire. It contains a set of rural development actions and objectives.
The document was written after analysis and consultation in the county in 2014 and will be reviewed annually. It identified key areas for development and support which will ensure Pembrokeshire is prosperous and that it remains vibrant and special. In doing this the plan is a mandate for Arwain Sir Benfro to offer support for projects that can meet the needs identified. This process helps to provide the LAG with a built-in ‘bottom-up’ direction for their LEADER work.
All projects supported by the LAG must fit with the priorities set out within the LDS.
If you feel there are challenges and opportunities not identified in the LDS which you feel are important, please let us know.
