Groups of businesses seeking to develop the rural industry or improve its productivity in Devon can now apply for a share of a new £2m fund.

The Devon Renaissance Sustainable Economies for Rural Communities project was launched last week to help develop sustainable farming, tourism and food projects.

It will also provide business support in Teignbridge, Mid Devon and East Devon that is not covered by the existing European Objective 2 funding.

This includes £300,000 to help bring redundant buildings – such as old farm buildings – back into commercial use. 

For more information visit Rural Devon Renaissance  or call 01837 658643.
