**Important Information**

Further to recent communications from the RPA, we understand that the likelihood of additional funds for LEADER areas demonstrating high demand has reduced. As a consequence, due to the number of Expressions of Interest received to date significantly exceeding our allocation, we are closing the Programme to new Expressions of Interest.

The Programme will close to any further Expressions of Interest in two weeks’ time, with the last Expression of Interest being accepted at 5pm on Friday 16 February 2018.


Welcome to the 2015 – 2020 North York Moors, Coast and Hills LEADER Programme website.  In early 2015 we heard we had successfully secured £2.336 million to spend on projects and activities in the area which will support and generate growth in the local economy over the next six years.

The North York Moors, Coast and Hills LEADER area covers the North York Moors, National Park, the Howardian Hills AONB, the Vale of Pickering, the Hambleton Hills, East Cleveland and the Heritage Coast from Saltburn in the north to Filey in the south.

Our website is home to all our most important Programme information, documentation and news so we hope you find it useful, but please contact us if you can’t find what you are looking for or would like any further information.
