Local Area Action Plans (LAAPs)
The seven Local Area Partnerships have developed a Local Area Action Plan for their respective area. These are simply plans to oversee the delivery of LEADER funding at a local level.
Each Local Area Partnership has the flexibility to focus on specific priorities from within the Highland Local Development Strategy which are considered to be of most relevance locally and these priorities are outlined in the Local Area Action Plan.
The seven plans will contribute towards the overall aims and objectives of the Highland Local Development Strategy. Collectively, the seven plans contribute towards the four themes and ten outcomes outlined in the Highland Local Development Strategy.
Applicants are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the content of the Highland Local Development Strategy / Local Area Action Plan and ensure they demonstrate how their project will contribute towards the aims and objectives of the Highland LEADER Programme.
