LEADER Development Themes

The main theme of the Local Development Strategy is the creation of Enterprising Communities.

Each Scottish Borders LEADER and Fisheries project application must show how the proposal helps achieve the aims of the Strategy to create Enterprising Communities, and how it will support one or more of the following development themes:

  • Focus on enterprise, including revenue generation and sustainability. 

  • Focus on support for small and micro rural businesses and social enterprises, including key rural sectors: 

    • Tourism – including raising standards.

    • Food and Drink – supply chain development.

    • Creative industries – including arts, culture and events.

    • Renewables – supporting the development of the low carbon economy and reducing energy bills. 

  • A focus on developing people: 

    • Supporting projects that create employment.

    • Developing community capacity and leadership.

    • Supporting employability and youth employment.

    • Supporting skills development and training opportunities.

  • Geographic focus on areas of rural deprivation.   

The full text of the strategy, including a description of the Scottish Borders area, is available to download here.
