Welcome to Making it Local!

The Treasury has announced that all European Funding programmes are under review. Further decisions are expected in the autumn statement. Therefore we are not able to encourage any outline applications at this time. If you would like to register your interest and a project idea, please email us or complete the contact form. We will then update you after the autumn statement.


£1.4m secured to award to projects in the Making it Local area!


The Making it Local, Local Action Group (LAG) is working with local people and businesses to develop opportunities for improving the rural economy and quality of life for people living and working in the area through a targeted grants programme called LEADER.

Our area is based on the parishes of the Blackdown Hills and East Devon AONBs and the surrounding gateway market towns.

Our overall aim is to use the outstanding environmental quality and local human potential as a ‘springboard’ for sustainable economic growth.
