Communities invited to discover funding sources to benefit rural enterprises
The Vale of Usk Rural Development Programme (RDP) – a partnership between Monmouthshire and Newport councils to promote rural communities and businesses and increase prosperity – is to take to the road in March to explain what funding is available for the area’s community groups. The Vale of Usk RDP administers funding under the Wales Rural Development Programme which covers business development, exploiting digital technology, developing renewable energy schemes for communities, using natural and cultural assets for sustainable, economic growth in areas like tourism and delivering local services within rural communities.
Meetings will take place at:
• Llanarth Village Hall, near Raglan, NP15 2AU – 6pm, Monday 14th March
• Bridges Community Centre, Monmouth, NP25 5AS – 6pm, Wednesday 16th March
• Redwick Village Hall, near Magor, NP26 3DE – 6pm, Wednesday 23rd March

Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for innovation and enterprise, Councillor Bob Greenland said: “These events provide a great opportunity for our rural communities to discover sources of funding that could lead to significant benefits. In a time of exceptionally tight budgets this is a rare opportunity to access new investments in our rural communities which will support greater resilience and sustainability.”
