Coast, Wolds, Wetlands & Waterways (CWWW) LEADER Programme

15th June 2016

Further to a recent email to ascertain your project status we can now confirm that the Rural Programmes East Yorkshire website is up to date with all of the latest information, please visit

Programme criteria, items not eligible for funding under this programme, along with other key documents, application forms and guidance are available for download, you can also visit the 'Post Code Checker' on the welcome page to see if your proposed project is in the CWWW LEADER area.

Potential applicants are directed to the website to fully read the CWWW LEADER Local Development Strategy (LDS), CWWW LEADER Applicant Hand Book and Outline Application/Full Application Guidance, this to enable self assessment for eligibility against this fund.

The minimum grant available is £2,500 although we expect, due to the high level of accountability, that applicants 'will not apply' for less than £5K. A maximum grant limit of £35K has been agreed by the LAG with an option to award higher grants for projects of high priority against the LDS, which will result in substantial outputs.

(the Local Growth Fund can accommodate grants of £35K and above, their next call for projects is September 2016, Details: York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Enterprise Partnership are issuing business development grants for the following: · food processing · small-scale tourism infrastructure · tourism cooperation)

Each of the, CWWW LEADER, 6 Priorities have a set, maximum, intervention rate. (See website).

Outline Applications will not be accepted until after the Purdah period @ 24th June
, therefore the Outline Application is currently a 'Draft' document and should not be completed, it is available for information only.

On submission of an Outline Application, applicants, will be contacted within 10 working days to advise if they are eligible for funding, if eligible applicants will be invited to complete a Full Application. The Full Application is currently a 'Draft' document available for information only. (It is essential that prospective applicants read all documentation available to fully understand what is required of them, this is a very different LEADER Programme to past programmes).

CWWW LEADER officers will be available to help at any stage in the process. Only on receipt of the Outline Application can a project be assessed for eligibility against CWWW LEADER funding. There will then follow, dependant on demand, a series of calls, by Priority, for Full Applications to be submitted.

From receipt of the Full Application there will follow a 40 'working' day time frame:

  • 5 Weeks of appraisal, ensuring quality checks
  • 2 weeks of Rural Payments Agency (RPA) quality checks
  • Papers to the Local Action Group Decision Making Board (DMB), (1 week prior to DMB meeting)
