The Consultation on Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP 2014-2020) Stage Two: Final Proposals has been published on the Consultations page. A summary document is also available.
The Scotland Rural Development Programme was a £1.2 billion programme of economic, environmental and social measures, designed to develop rural Scotland between 2007 and 2013.
The next stage of the SRDP is due to run from 2014-2020.
The Scottish Government has taken steps to ensure that transition arrangements are in place for as much as possible of the SRDP for 2014, until the new Common Agricultural Policy starts in 2015.
The Scottish Government is committed to listening to customers in helping to shape the way it delivers services. Please send general comments and suggestions to SRDPfeedback@scotland.gsi.gov.uk.
