Rural Strategy for Yorkshire - feedback survey closed
In response to the ever-changing financial and policy environment in which we and the communities we serve operate, Rural Action Yorkshire has published a draft Rural Strategy which we hope reflects the current state of affairs in our area and which can be used to guide funding and policy decisions by a wide range of partners in the coming years. Over the last few weeks we have been running a survey to get your feedback on the document. The survey is now closed and we are now in the process of analysing the results and seeing how we can use them to improve the Strategy - watch this space for more developments later in the year. In the meantime you can still read the draft strategy here.
