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.
