Welcome to Solway, Border and Eden LEADER - 'supporting sustainable development for rural north Cumbria’.
The landscape of the Solway, Border and Eden LEADER area is very diverse comprising the lowland areas of the West Cumbria and Solway coastal plain and the Eden Valley, extending to the more sparsely populated North Pennines uplands in the east. The area has many strengths including a wide variety of business sectors, significant environmental assets including Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site, vibrant market towns and strong local networks.
The Solway, Border and Eden LEADER Programme is now open for grants to small businesses, farmers, foresters and communities for projects that create jobs and grow the rural economy.
